"Sisters, blisters, and tongue twisters": that's the secret password for The Sisters Club. Alex (12), Stevie (10), and Joey (8) Reel are three distinctly different and dramatic sisters who are devoted to one another. Swearing in Shakespeare, talking to sock monkeys, preparing unique and tasty(?) dinners, and giving each other marshmallow pedicures (don't ask!) are just a few of the crazy and wacky things these sisters do.

Oldest sister, Alex, has a flare for drama and she has set her sights on acting...and when the school play, Beauty and the Beast is holding auditions, she is sure she'll get the lead. And, she does. She is especially smitten with the role since Scott Howel (aka Scott Towel) is cast as Beast. All goes well...until Joey and Stevie embarrass Alex when Scott comes over to practice their lines. Alex quits the sisters club...vowing to never speak to either sister again!.

Of course, like all 'nevers' in life, this declaration has a way of coming back to bite Alex in the behind. True sisters come to each other's rescue when it is needed the most...and that is just the icing on the blue cupcake for these loveable, energetic sisters.

This audio version is wonderfully cast as the three sisters' voices are narrated by different actors. The words in the novel come to life and you can just picture the sisters sitting around explaining the world according to Reel Family.
