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 finished! This book is amazing, just like when I read it the first time. I love Megan in Paris, Becca in Mankato, Cassidy and her love for Hockey. Emma and her books. Jess and......Darcy! I LOVE Darcy, he is the kind of guy I want to date when I grow up. It was amazing to watch the girl grow up, and I have to say that, hands down, this was the best Mother Daughter Book Club book in the series. If you haven't read the books, all I have to say is that you are missing out. And I am not stretching ...more

When I picked up this book, I didn’t realize it was the last book in a series. The Jane Eyre reference interested me, and I didn’t even check what the whole story was about. I decided to read it anyways, without knowing what happened with the characters beforehand. I probably wouldn’t recommend doing that, but for someone purely interested in reading this book for the Jane Eyre content, I found this a very enjoyable read.

I loved this book!! It's a whole lot better than I remember XD
The first few chapters I was like ehhh *shrugs* but it got much better after that.

This is just such a good, clean series!!! I don't think I'll ever get tired of them! After I re-read the last book, I think I'm just gonna turn around and read them again XD

I feel like it's kinda of silly but I really like (view spoiler)

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.

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 don't read many continuing books in a series for review on Mother Daughter Book 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

This year the Mother-Daughter Book Club will be reading Jane Eyre. Not everything always goes smoothly for the girls, but they at least have their friends in the book club to help them through the storms of life. When Sophie Fairfax comes to live with the Wong's for a year jealousy flairs. The girls band together to pull off a prank that will put Sophie in her place, but will it backfire on them?

Emma is feeling that her boyfriend Stewart is paying too much attention to Sophie. When they both are
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 am in the acknowledgements which means that this book is awesome!

Okay since that does not constitute a book review or anything except gloating I will review the book. The girls are reading Jane Eyre and there is excitement in Concord, there is a French exchange student Sophie who comes to stay with Megan and her family. Each of the girls learn a lesson relating to Jane Eyre. Megan gets to go to Paris with Gigi for Fashion Week and the descriptions of Paris made me miss it so much. I also love

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.
Also, please

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

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

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

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

Wish You Were Eyre is the sixth book in the Mother-Daughter Book Club Series by Heather Vogel Frederick.

I had a lot of pet peeves with this book. I probably wouldn't have minded as much if I hadn't read the other books in the series, but I have, so you can read them at the bottom. I'll start with the positive things first, though.

Jane Eyre is my very favorite book. I adore it. So I was happy the book club was reading that this year. I loved reading about Megan's trip to Paris, and totally I ag

I LOVE reading young adult fiction as an adult! There are some wonderful stories being written for young people, many of which remind me of my own favorites as a child. This series is no exception! I find that the author has struck a fantastic balance between what is current and allowing the characters to evolve in a way that is respectful of their ages. Their parents are involved in the lives of their children, while also having lives of their own- careers, relationships and everyday problems t ...more
