Yours Truly A Pumpkin Falls Mystery by Heather Vogel Frederick*

Sequel to Absolutely Truly.
During spring break, Truly and her family join in the New Hampshire's Pumpkin Falls "Maple Madness".  Someone, however, is breaking the sap lines from the trees.  Soon a feud breaks out in town and Truly's family finds themselves in the middle of it.  Then Truly and her cousin  Mackenzie discover a diary from an ancestor and uncover some exciting family history.
Mysteries abound in the sleepy town of Pumpkin Falls.
Points to discuss: Scooter, a boy Truly only likes as a friend, gives her a kiss.  She struggles with jealousy as her friends that are boys fawn over her cousin Mackenzie.  She also likes Calhoun but thinks he likes Mackenzie.  So, some girl drama and young teen awkward romance is exemplified.
*Highly recommend  for 5th grade and up.(I love the small town of Pumpkin Falls and Truly's big, boisterous family. The history woven into the main story is also fascinating.  The family bookstore, of course, makes me love this "series" all the more!!)
Book recommendations and Aunt True's Bookshop Blondies recipe are included in the back.
