10.7 - Sugar Shack
Early spring is prime maple sugaring season. Read a book set primarily (at least 50%) in one or more of the largest producers of the sweet stuff: Canada, Vermont, New York, Maine, Wisconsin, Ohio, New Hampshire, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, or Connecticut. Required: If the GRs description does not make it clear, explain how your book fits the task.

It sounds like its primarily (or at least half) set in NYC so, yes, this would work.

Dee (austhokie) | 7539 comments I know you are out of town Kristi - but Secrets of the Lost Summer - the description only says north-east US, but references the Swift River Valley which is in MA according to Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quabbin_...

Altho I'm covering Kristi's tasks while she's away, I'm going to leave this one for her.

Some of the reviews mention Massachusetts. So, yes, that'll work.

Mrs.soule (mrssoule) Can I use Jim Gaffigan's Dad Is Fat for this? It's non-fiction, but it's about his experiences as a father raising five kids in an New York City apartment.

Sure. Since the GRs description doesn't mention it, though. Make sure you include the fact that it's set in NYC when you post. I'll add it to post #2 as approved, too.

No, sorry, it needs to be an actually place in Massachussetts.
