Publisher's Summary

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? Acclaimed author Heather Vogel Frederick will delight daughters of all ages in a novel about the fabulousness of fiction, family, and friendship.

Computerized Reading - Aweful

What disappointed you about The Mother-Daughter Book Club?

Don't let your kid listen to this book. It's so computerized that it makes you cringe.

Coming-of-age story for young girls

The story is told in turns by four 6th graders, who are compelled by their mothers to be part of a mother-daughter book club. They meet monthly to discuss "Little Women." The problems and angst of the four young girls are often juxtaposed with the four March sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. The book is more meaningful if you've read "Little Women." Some of the characters are a little far-fetched for the little town of Concord - millionaire family, former model, and mother who went to New York to be an actress on a soup opera. But it's a sweet coming-of-age story for young girls.

I loved it!

Where does The Mother-Daughter Book Club rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first, but not the last.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked all the different girls' points of view. The character development was fantastic. You were able to follow the characters through their problems and the characters grew to know each other.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was fantastic. Using different voices for the characters really brought it to life.

Remembering

This is a great story for coming of age in school and in everyday life. Makes me wish I spent these days with my daughter in a book club.

The Mother-Daughter Book Club was adorable!!!

I greatly enjoyed listening to this book! It brought me back to times in my life when I have experienced similar difficulties and challenges. I greatly admired how it was so clean and wholesome to listen to!

I will CERTAINLY recommend this book to all of my nieces who are entering/enduring their teenage years! Several of the situations which came up at school -such as the dance-brought back memories which I felt weee exclusive only to me! It was amazing to see the way in which the author brought those out and made things work out well for the characters.
