I am enjoying Heather Vogel Frederick's Much Ado About Anne immensely, and actually truth be told quite a bit more than the first instalment of the series (and of course, that L. M. Montgmery's Anne of Green Gables series is being read and discussed by the Mother-Daughter Book Club in the sequel is and remains for me the sweet and delicious icing on the proverbial cake).

The issues faced and encountered by Emma, Jess, Megan and Cassidy in Much Ado About Anne are generally realistically enough co

It is year 2 of the Mother-Daughter Book Club. Megan, Cassidy, Jess, and Emma are now entering the seventh grade not knowing that their worlds are beginning to change. It also gets flipped upside-down when Becca Chadwick joins the book club making Emma's life miserable and Jess's family may have to sell half moon farm. Can the girls save half moon farm and solve the problems that has been bothering them this year all while surviving book club with reading Anne of Green Gables? Read this for your ...more

This is the second book in the "Mother-Daughter Book Club" series and continues the story of Cassidy, Jess, Emma, and Megan who are all friends despite their differences. Each girl faces new challenges in their lives with humor and heartache that is typically a part of growing up. One of the girls is facing the possibility of her mother remarrying; one is facing the possibility of her family losing their historical farm because of taxes; one is facing the fact that she is growing up and becoming ...more

It’s no secret that I loved the first book in The Mother Daughter Book Club series. You can read my review (with a perfect score to match) here. Now I will gush about how much I loved the next two books.
I enjoyed reading about Emma, Jess, Cassidy, and Megan during their seventh and eighth grade years at school. With the addition of stuck-up Becca, there is plenty of drama to go around.
Much Ado About Anne is based on the classic Anne of Green Gables. In this book, the girls are trying to s

Easy chick-lit type read. I find myself really (somewhat reluctantly) enjoying the concept of a book about a group of girls who have formed a small book group -- in this case, they are reading Anne of Green Gables -- and their trials and tribulations. Problems arise, disasters strike, and solutions must be found. The characters are believable and represent a wide range of personalities.

Heather Vogel Frederick continues her delightful mother-daughter book club series with Much Ado About Anne. This time the book club is reading the Anne of Green Gables series, and the girls are totally committed to their book club and to each other when the new reading year starts for their group. There are new challenges—can the moms really have invited Phoebe and Becca Chadwick into their book club without asking the girls?—and new events arise that test their friendship in ways they don't exp ...more

These books are really sweet, and full of bookish references. Its hard to not find enjoyment in them!

I still find all the negative talk about weight and looks disturbing. My own daughter is only 9, and thankfully hasn't started speaking negatively about her body (or other people's) yet. I don't remember when those thoughts started in my own head, but I hate them, and I don't enjoy books that perpetuate them. I'm sure the author is just trying to make the characters relatable, but it makes me sad. 2.5 stars


I was also disturbed that Stanley would place a tracking device in Clem
