Book Review:The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick

Book Description:
The book club

is about to get

a makeover....

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?

My thoughts:
I kept coming across The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick when I was at the library, at the bookstore and when browsing blogs. It caught my interest so I ordered it from the library. This was like reading Chick-Lit for kids. It was fun to see a group of girls and their moms get caught up into Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. The resolution of the story was a little unrealistic, but hey, it fiction and it is for young girls! My only dislike was the bullying that went on in the story. It seems to be a hot topic for everyone to write about or portray in films lately.
