The Mother-Daughter Book Club, by Heather Vogel Frederick, is about a club that was started between four mothers to have their children become closer. However, the mothers did not realize how the 4 girls were very unlikely to become friends. The book shows the lives of all four girls, Meagan, Cassidy, Emma, and Jess. From secret crushes to heartbreaks the lives of these middle school girls are nothing, but heartwarming.
When I first picked up this book, I realized that it looked inappropriate for my age, meaning too easy. However, when I started to read it, the book made me realize that it was similar to middle schoolers today. All these connections made the book more enjoyable. No one is too old or too young to read this fascinating book. The Mother-Daughter Book Club might look odd, but that shouldn't interfere with taking the time to read this wonderful book. At times, I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time! This book was very enjoyable! I encourage everyone to read it!
