YOUNG ADULT FICTION -- Mystery
It's Homecoming at Ravensville High, and Annette and Penny are both
longing to get asked to the big dance. Annette's hopes center around Pete Randt,
who seems on the verge of asking her, but is just too darn shy.
The trees are in their peak with autumn color, and Halloween is only two weeks away. The girls have set up a pumpkin stand on the front porch to raise money to buy a horse.
But a drug ring has descended upon rural Ravensville, with kids dropping left and right.
Meanwhile, Pete's older cousin Luke arrives for an extended visit... and he's got his eye on Annette...
Ham radio plays a part in solving the third mystery in this '60s era Annette Vetter adventure series.
Read a Letter to Readers from Annette Vetter herself!
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
About The Pouting Pumpkin Mystery
There isn't a lovelier time of the year in Wisconsin than the woods in October, with the splendor of autumn colors and Indian Summer afternoons.
My teen-age years hold precious memories as a time when I came to appreciate nature, and the bonding of special friends.
Annette, of course, is the girl I always wanted to be -- bold, rational, and grounded -- but mostly a girl who had the privilege of growing up in the country.
The ham radio theme in The Pouting Pumpkin Mystery was inspired by my oldest brother, Jon Schumacher, whose ham hobby since childhood always fascinated me. At age 62 he is still a ham operator out of Pahrump, Nevada, at KNV1, and his wife, Sally, is a ham at KE7FDD.
Annette and Penny's desire to own a horse together motivates them into growing a pumpkin patch and selling them to raise the needed funds. When the Duncan's hired hand, Dave Beck, suggests they would make more money selling carved jack-o-lanterns, they take him up on his idea... never suspecting the man's true intentions at offering them some helpful advice.
Annette can't seem to make up her mind which boy she likes best in The Pouting Pumpkin Mystery, because even though she's set her sights on Pete Randt, his cousin's pretty groovy... and then... oh dear, there's those mixed-up feelings about her best friend's brother Tim!
