Megan, Cassidy, Emma, and Jess are as different as four preteen girls can be. Yet, their mothers are friends and have invented a mother-daughter book club to spend more "quality time" with the girls. The book that they have chosen- LITTLE WOMEN by Louisa May Alcott.
Emma, whose mother was the brains behind the book club, has already read this book and many others. As an aspiring writer she reads any book she can get her hands on. It ...more

My Review: This series is so good. It's probably my favorite ever. All the characters are so real to me. It's impossible not to love them. I just love all of them! Obviously, I hate the characters I'm supposed to hate. Everyone (even unimportant characters) is so fleshed out and has their own pros and cons. There really aren't that many good middle grade books, but this series makes up for it.
I didn't like how they made fun of Mrs. Chadwi ...more
I guess I am biased from the start because--with a few exceptions--I'm just not a huge fan of books that take place in the modern time period (I prefer historical settings). Further in its defense, this book is most certainly geare ...more
The concept is so great -- mother-daughter book club! What could be better?! My 11 year old daughter and I took it on with gusto. We even bought four in the series! Ugh.
About 15 minutes in I had the full picture. Okay, I know, it's written for preteens, so no wonder that as the mother I could predict it all. But still... The book was uber-disappointing.
Lots of ugly bullying. In some books, this can be done well and provide a lesson for girls. In this case, the bull ...more
This book is the rather cliche story of four girls who don't like/know each other very well, who become friends over the course of the book. You've got four girls with very distinct personalities to map to the March sisters. Unfortunately, the author chose to write the book from all four perspectives (alternating chapters) but largely fails to distinguish their narrative voices. The book would ha ...more
This is the first book of the mother daughter book club series and it was pretty good. I'll definitely continue with this series at a later time. If you like books about book clubs and friends, def ch ...more

The Mother Daughter Book Club is the first in a four-book series. Each book in the series takes on a different classic in the setting of a mother and daughter book club. The first book explores Little Women, one of my favorite girlie classics.
I cannot begin to tell you how creative this book is. There are four sets of mothers and daughters in the book club. Each daughter can easily be compared to the main characters in Little Women. Jess is a shy animal lover, Emma loves food and books, Me ...more
The plotting was solid. I liked Cassidy best, natch.
I had some trouble distinguishing the voices of the various characters at first, but that resolved as I got further in.
Some of the characters remained more caricatures than not, most notably the "mean girl" Becca and her mother, the fat-assed Mrs. Chadwi ...more

The Mother-Daughter Book Club is a fun, loving and heart filled book packed with pages to excite everyone!
The mothers want to grow closer to their daughters, so they form a book club. Now this wasn't what all the girls were planning, nor was it their idea of fun". When the girls find out that a book club is being formed and they have to join it trouble brews. On the first day of the book club, all the girls meet and have fun. The dreaded se ...more

The Mother-Daughter Book Club was reading Little Women. Throughout the book, there were facts about Louisa May Alcott, as well as little comments about Little Women. So, if you have not read Little Women, I would highly recommend reading that book as well. But you do not have to read before readin ...more
Though there were four archetypal main girls, I couldn't relate to any one of them as they were all so one-dimensional and went on, in the later books, to live such unrealistic lives. I didn't enjoy it at all.
