This book was really cute, sweet, and lighthearted. It was about the relationship between 4 unlikely friends (who don’t start out that way), and the relationship between these girls and their mothers. It was an easy read, and definitely enjoyable.
The references to Little Women, the book chosen as the first read of the year’s Mother Daughter Book Club, and the ties that the author made between the girls and the March family, gave the book something extra.
The book made me think about my own middle school years, because Emma, Jess, Cassidy, and Megan go through their own 6th grade trials and tribulations, all the while trying to find where they belonged and more about who they were. I’m looking forward to reading ‘Much Ado About Anne,’ during which the girls read Anne of Green Gables. 🙂
