Although highly entertaining, Maddie's story also offers readers something important. The main character finds her voice and stands up for herself when the stakes are high. (She risks losing her best friend.) As a mom of two daughters, this is just the kind of story I like!
Tween readers will definitely connect with Maddie, a likable seventh grader who is trying to figure out how to be loyal to her best friend while being true to herself. (They both like the same boy.) Adding to her challenges is a school project that requires Maddie to do the very thing she fears---public speaking.
Highly relatable, fast paced and fun, PUMPKIN SPICE SECRETS offers tween readers the perfect amount of sugar and spice.
