The Styling Librarian

In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian Saturday Book Share Absolutely Truly

”Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share”.

Here’s to celebrating books that strike my fancy every week!

Absolutely Truly

Absolutely Truly by Heather Vogel Frederick, 4th grade and up. Realistic Fiction.
ARC, Book release date: Nov. 4th, 2014.
Loved this book.
Touching family story, displaced after father loses arm and comes home from war, moves into grandparents home and runs bookstore…
Loved connections to Owl Moon by Jane Yolen and Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. It has an excellent small town feel with characters you quickly care about. Wouldn’t mind hanging out in the bookstore in Pumpkin Moon!   Perfect book which Heather Vogel Frederick demonstrates her talent for making you care about small towns, individuals, and how a community can come together to help one another and how small actions can help many. Just lovely.

Goodreads Summary: “An unsent letter in a first edition copy of Charlotte’s Web leads to a hunt for treasure in this heartwarming middle grade mystery from the author of The Mother-Daughter Book Club.
Now that Truly Lovejoy’s father has been injured by an IED in Afghanistan and is having trouble finding work back home, the family moves from Texas to tiny Pumpkin Falls, New Hampshire, to take over Lovejoy’s Books, a struggling bookstore that’s been in the family for one hundred years.
With two older brothers and two younger sisters clamoring for attention, her mother back in school, and everyone up to their eyebrows trying to keep Lovejoy’s Books afloat, Truly feels more overlooked than usual. So she pours herself into uncovering the mystery of an undelivered letter she finds stuck in a valuable autographed first edtion of Charlotte’s Web, which subsequently goes missing from the bookshop. What’s inside the envelope leads Truly and her new Pumpkin Falls friends on a madcap treasure hunt around town, chasing clues that could spell danger.”

About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
