The Mother – Daughter Book Club, by Heather Vogel Fredrick

download (1)Emma has already read everything. Megan would love to be at the mall. Cassidy would rather be playing hockey. And Jess barely talks. But these 4 girls are now part of the mother – daughter book club. As the girls read Little Women they navigate the social part of middle school. Through the ups and the downs these 4 unlikely friends are in for a wild ride this year.



This book is very realistic. I enjoyed it but there were a few flaws with the book. I think that the characters were very realistic and so was the plot. I always enjoy a realistic book. 

The characters were very funny. It was them against the world. I thought that all the characters needed to grow up more. I mean, sometimes they acted like 2 year olds. And since they are 11 and 12, they should not be acting this way. I wanted them to be a little bit more grown up. And these girls showed little to no character development which made me annoyed. Otherwise, the characters were great. My favorite was Emma, the one who read everything. I mean, most book bloggers can relate to that. Even though we are swamped with books to read. I enjoyed the characters for their diversity, wit, and humor. If you read books for the characters I would not recommend this book because it does not have the best characters.

The plot was very cool. I mean, who wouldn’t have wanted to be in a mother – daughter book club? Actually, probably anyone not reading this. I know that I would have loved that. The idea was really cool. I also liked this book because it taught you things about Concord in a fun way so that it did not seem like you were learning anything. Some people I know hate reading, but would love this book. I think that the plot moves at just the right pace. The author has hit her writing sweetspot for the plot. I think that the Little Women quotes in the beginning of each chapter were really awesome as well. Reading that book made me want to reread Little Women. (Side note: Don’t read this book if you have not read Little Women. There are major spoilers.) 

I loved reading this book and I cannot wait to read the next one in the series. Please remember to fill out my survey. You can find the link on my about page. Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!!! -Annalee and Buttons
