Sometimes secrets aren't so sweet...

Just as Maddie picks up her pumpkin spice frappe from the coffee shop counter, she spills it all over the cute boy behind her. Talk about mortifying! Luckily, the boy -- Jacob -- is also friendly and easygoing, and soon Maddie is deeply in crush.

But before she can tell her best friend Jana about him at lunch the next day, Jana announces her huge new crush -- on Jacob! Maddie doesn't want to cause trouble, so she keeps her feelings hidden. Jana will get over him soon, right?

Add major school stress to Maddie's secret, and it's a recipe for disaster. Can she stay true to both her friend and her heart... without it all turning into a sticky mess?

N/A
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!
Good Points
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.
