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 also helps that her mother just happens to be a librarian.

The book club is the last place that Megan wants to be. She would rather be at the mall with her friends, taking notes for outfits she would like to design one day. Her mother, on the other hand, has great dreams in mind for Megan. Dreams that involve science and math camp and Harvard. Megan hates that.

Cassidy would rather be out playing hockey then spending time in a book club. She is proud of her tomboy status but her mother, an ex-model, is less than thrilled. Cassidy knows that this book club is just another way to try to make her more girly and she hates it.

Jess is best friends with Emma and has fun with her in the book club. The only problem is that her own mother has temporarily moved to New York to be a soap opera star. This means that Jess usually has to go to these book club meetings alone -- or worse, with her dad.

At the beginning of this book none of the girls are into the book club and would all rather be doing something else. However, with a little help from Louisa May Alcott and a few other interesting events, the girls really come to love it.

This book was really, really good. The characters are easy to relate to and the storyline is amazing. This book did leave me a bit teary-eyed, but it was a good teary-eyed. Pick up a copy of THE MOTHER-DAUGHTER BOOK CLUB and start reading it right away; you won't be able to put it down. While you're at it, pick up a copy of LITTLE WOMEN, too. There are some fun questions at the end of this book that go along with it and that book is also amazing.

My daughter and I read this for a newly-organized mother daughter book club and we both really enjoyed it. I could easily relate to the angst of that time and it stimulated some good discussion of the social milieu of that phase. Not too heavy, though.

My tween and I love reading this series, as well as the Mother-Daughter Book Club's books, together! My favorite aspects are the peek into modern tween girls' lives, and the way this series motivates my tween to explore the classics.
