The Mother-Daughter Book Club - Heather Vogel Frederick

The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick
Genre: YA Realistic Fiction

Blurb (on back of book): The book club is about to get a makeover...
Even if Megan would rather be at the mall, Cassidy is late for soccer practice, Emma's already read every book in existence, and Jess is missing her mother too much to care, the new book club is scheduled to meet every month.
But what begins as a mom-imposed ritual of reading Little Women soon helps four unlikely friends navigate the drama of middle school. From stolen journals, to secret crushes, to a fashion-fiasco first dance, the girls are up to their Wellie boots in drama. They can't help but wonder: What would Jo March do?
Acclaimed author Heather Vogel Frederick will delight daughters of all ages in a novel about the fabulousness of fiction, family, and friendship.


I love this book! I read this a while ago, maybe last year or something. I got hooked after the first chapter, and I soon finished the whole series! This book is incredible! I love all of the book club's book choosings, since I have read many of them myself. The characters are quirky and fun, and full of drama. I love Emma and Jess. They are so sweet and so easy to grow attached to. I hated Becca at first, but soon she turned into a loveable character as well. I have always disliked Mrs. Chadwick, despite her being a rather kind woman all in all.

I love this whole entire series! There are too many to do individual reviews on, but they all are very interesting! I love realistic fiction, especially about middle-schoolers! I love all of the drama (crushes, stolen diaries, etc). I also love how these four become friends, though they are so reluctant before.

Overall, this book deserves an A+! I would recommend it to all middle-schoolers, and even elementary- and high-schoolers! Any girl would like this book!
