Synopsis: An aspiring yet practical author, Ellen Fremedon decides to start a newspaper. After all, everyone buys newspapers, so she?s bound to turn a profit. But after promising her subscribers a paper full of truth and free of errors, Ellen finds that journalism isn?t so easy after all. Obituary notices for pets not a hit. An incorrect muffin recipe? Disaster. Spelling and grammar mistakes? Many, as the village librarian is quick to point out. Then there?s the little matter of managing the cash flow. But Ellen is intrepid, especially when it comes to investigative reporting. Is the new neighbor sinister, as village gossips suspect, or merely secretive? Is the Fremedon?s new housekeeper really the upstanding community member she appears to be? Even members of Ellen?s own family fall under suspicion. This smart, witty sequel features the charmingly eccentric characters of the original Ellen?s philosopher dad, the impossible twins, Larry the librarian, and the Bible-quoting Mrs. T. as well as a delightful dose of intrigue.

From Booklist: Gr. 5-7. In this sequel to the Canadian writer's Ellen Fremedon(2004), the title character begins another summer in the quiet community of Partridge Cove. With her best friend, Jenny, Ellen starts a newspaper, little suspecting what kind of stories she will uncover. Still reeling from a shock delivered by her parents, Ellen must deal with a troubling revelation about the village vandal, the disclosure that their Bible-quoting housekeeper has a secret identity, and the surprising fact that her interview with a kind but mysterious new neighbor brings wider press coverage to Partridge Cove. From Ellen's mother's long-term illness to Jenny's mother's lesbianism, Givner doesn't shrink from placing Ellen in a realistically complex environment, but she handles issues lightly and keeps the focus squarely on Ellen, a sympathetic character and convincing first-person narrator. Readers who enjoyed the first book will want to know what happens next, while those new to the series will have little trouble picking up the thread. Carolyn Phelan
