Spring Break Read
Even if Megan would rather be at the mall, Cassidy is late for hockey 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 really loved this book. I couldn't put it down, and ended up reading it in about 3 hours. I think there's something for everyone represented in this story. There are four very different main characters, yet each one has similarities with one of the March sisters from Little Women. As a kid, I read Little Women and really loved it, and have read it again as a adult and it's even better. It would be really fun to read Little Women, then read this book. And it's the start of a series! My verdict- read this book. You won't regret it!
