It is Spring Break at the Mother Daughter Book Club and while the girls are reading Jane Eyre as their final read in the book club, things are beginning to get chaotic in their lives. Megan's world gets turned upside-down when Annabelle Fairfax's cousin Sophie who is apart of the Exchange student program at her high school is picked to live with her family and the green monster of envy begins to seep its way into her as she is taking away her family and kitten. To make matters worse, her mother ...more

Hmm. Well. Not too good, not too bad. For Home for the Holidays, I didn't like it the first time, and then I reread it and began to like it. I reread this one, and it still just struck me as cheesy and super unrealistic.

Like how everything ties together perfectly. If you go back and look at all the descriptions of Sophie before, she's obviously not trying to be nice.

Also, Heather Vogel Frederick has a lot of errors in all her books. Like, when Jess's goat Sundance has a kid, Jess names it Sunbe

I like these books overall, and I really have enjoyed reading this series. But, there was one thing in this book that really turned me off.

In every book of the series, the author consistently praises every single book mentioned and puts on a pedestal every author. In this book, even Cassidy, the reluctant reader, loves Jane Eyre. But, for some unknown reason, the author totally pans The Scarlet Letter. She could have simply not even mentioned The Scarlet Letter, but she seems to have gone out of

I don't read many continuing books in a series for review on Mother Daughter Book Club.com. My review philosophy is that if the first book in a series is strong enough to stand on its own, then it's a good choice for book clubs to read and discuss while letting individual members decide whether to continue with the series.

I occasionally make exceptions and the six-novel-strong The Mother-Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick is one of those. How could I not read a fictional series

Although I relished the references to one of my all-time classic reads, Jane Eyre, and enjoyed the idea of a Mother-Daugher Book Club, allowing mothers and daughters to bond through literature, there was too little of the book club in this title, to my way of thinking. I'd have forgiven that if all these girls hadn't been such super-achievers. It's not that I have anything against superachievers, mind you. I simply found it hard to believe that these five high school sophomores had already accom ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Wish You Were Eyre is the 5th book in the mother daughter book club series. Unfortunately, it is the last, and I will miss all the characters. What I enjoyed about not only this book but the whole series was that I really knew and understood every single character. They were well developed, well described, and I kept wanting to read more.
In Wish You Were Eyre, Megan Wong and her grandmother Gigi get to go to Paris over spring break. Megan being a teen fashion designer

This book tells a story about a mother-daughter book club who has five main characters. Each chapter is about a different girl. This book has some drama when an exchange girl from Paris moves into Megan's house because GiGi invited her in. The mother-daughter book club is reading a book by Charlotte Brontë called Jane Eyre. The author tells a wonderful tale of five girls each looking for thier "Mr.Rochester." I absolutely am in love with this book! I highly suggest if you like books that have di ...more

I picked up this book looking for something that might tempt my eleven year old daughter. I had high hopes for it but came away quite disappointed. It was a struggle to finish. I had trouble telling the girls apart-- chapters alternate with the story being told in first person by the five? six? (See, I can't even remember how many) friends who are members of this mother-daughter book club. The biggest challenge was that there was very little difference in voice for each of these characters, maki ...more

Let's be clear: this book deserves 4 stars. It was one of my favourite in the Mother-Daughter bookclub series and that means a lot, as I enjoyed them all.

BUT... I had to take one star off for all the French mistakes. When you have characters supposed to be native French speakers, please check their French. And by that I don't mean try and remember your high school lessons, I mean, give the book to be proofread by a French native speaker. I swear, they aren't hard to find in the USA.

Okay, so I enjoyed this book, especially the references to Jane Eyre which is one of my favorite books of all time! But I thought the girls' stories got a little unrealistic. I realize it's still a story, but it seems to me a bit much (for a realistic fiction about teens) to have one friend be on a nationally winning hockey team (with an ex-supermodel/tv star mom), one to be a paid fashion designer (and go to Paris Fashion week at 16), one to be a star singer (with a ex-soap star mom), AND one t ...more

The book entitled "Wish you were Eyre" by Heather Vogel Frederic is the sixth and final book in the wonderful Mother-Daughter book club series. It is an incredible ending to the series and is extremely surprising, to say the least.
This book focuses in the book club's sophomore year in high school, from January to June, and trouble is stirred up in many ways during this time. Sophie Fairfax, a cousin of "Stinkerbell's", arrives as an exchange student in Concord and is taking the joy out of Mega

Wish You Were Eyre: I love the Mother Daughter Book Club Series, and it was really sad to me that this was the last book. The series mainly appealed to me because it had realistic characters, put in realistic situations. I like how each character has their own unique identity which isn't blown up. the author doesn't make the book perfect, and the characters all have their flaws, which made it a great read. I really think I would have thought about Sophie in the same way from Megan's point of vie ...more

The mother daughter book club is a great book I will never forget. This book is about all of these girls that have formed a book club with their mothers. The girls have different personalities and different problems. This really relates to life because you do have problems like Megan (a character in the book) where your jealous of them because their smarter than you or prettier than you. But that can't let you down. It also relates to real life because you can't judge someone by their cover if t ...more

This is the 6th and final installment of the Mother-Daughter Book Club series. Discovering the series was discovering a real treasure, and we have grown with the characters over the years, from my teen starting these in 6th grade to finishing them now, in her 10th grade. The kids in the books are a grade older than she is.

My teen originally liked the books because, in her words, they were "the most realistic" stories about modern teen life, and she thought they described teen girl friendships w

I absolutely adored this book, like all the others in the MDBC series. Cherishing these girls lives, a mix of happiness and sadness makes me realize that I will miss these girls so much. I have grown up with them for four years, and each book made me laugh and cry. Each part of this story was lovable, and I couldn't stop reading! I finished the entire novel in a day. I will forever love the MDBC-Its characters, its stories, and its treasures.

Fifth book in the MDBC series, and even though Jane Eyre is not my favorite book (I agreed with one of the girls, I forget which now, that I wanted to throw the book across the room (JE that is) during the whole section with cousin St. John), I always enjoy reading these books. I loved all the Betsy-Tacy references and Becca visiting Mankato MN. I also really love Gigi! I do hope this isn't the last one dear Heather???
