      The overall concept of this book really appealed to me, and I approached it with the highest expectations I loved the Concord setting and the fun facts related to LMA and Little Women Unfortunately, there were too many issues that kept me from enjoying it On a minor note, it was hard to follow and I had to frequently flip back to see whose voice I was reading Not a big deal, but I m glad I didn t read it on my Nook I didn t find the book to be at all believable The girls, especially Emma, felt o [...]

      I have been trying to find books to suggest to my 6th grade daughter Apparently all of her friends are now reading Twilight, Hunger Games, and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants I ve read all of these young adult books and have really enjoyed them, but I d like her to wait a little longer before reading what I would consider books with older teen issues We looked through for some suggested books and stumbled upon the Mother Daughter Book Club One person s review mentioned that it was a great pre [...]

      In the Mother Daughter Book Club, there are four girls Megan who loves clothes, Cassidy who loves hockey and baseball and hates girly things, Emma who loves books and food, and shy Jess who is best friends with Emma and her mother left her family to go o New York to become her star on broadway As you can see they re all very different Their Moms put together a book club and none of them want to go Near the end of the story they all love book club and are all friend even though they are all so di [...]

      This was seriously such a fun concept Contemporary fiction with a theme of classic literature Yes, please I was expecting the book to be about the book club meetings than it actually was, but I still enjoyed what it ended up being Also, you don t have to be a Little Women expert to enjoy it I ve only seen the movie, and I loved guessing which March sister each character paralleled Once I figured it out, it was really cool to see that the plot had a few Easter eggs The author did a good job maki [...]

      While I did end up somewhat enjoying Heather Vogel Frederick s The Mother Daughter Book Club, I remain rather majorly conflicted and up and down, both hot and cold I guess I am than just a bit disappointed, as this was such an appealing and promising premise, not only the concept of a mother daughter book club, but also that one of my all time favourite books, Louisa May Alcott s Little Women would be read and discussed, and the magic I was expecting, never really did materialise there were a f [...]

      Reviewed by Michaela Pallante aka Mickey for TeensReadTooMegan, 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 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 he [...]

      I CANNOT recommend this book 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 bullying was met with [...]

    8. Kate on said:

      By the time kids are in sixth grade, which I assume is the intended audience for this cusp of YA book, they should be reading books that challenge stereotypes, not reinforce them If the examples in this book are to be believed, all rich teenagers are mean and obsessed with makeup all environmentalists dress in beat up jeans and bake rock hard, disgusting vegan cookies all girls who like sports are ill mannered and hate to dress up all bookworms are shy and cry at the drop of a hat do you see whe [...]

      Age 10 Plot 4 starsCharacters 4.5 starsWriting 5 starsMy 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 Chadwick, but, later [...]

    10. Susan on said:

      I like the concept of the series, and the book was enjoyable, but there were several times when I felt that the voice of the various pre teens just did not ring quite true They did, in fact, read too much like an adult writing what was happening, rather than a teen s thinking or speaking I know that, for instance, the character Emma, being a bright girl and a big reader, would speak with a larger vocabulary than many 12 year olds, but the particular word selections turns of phrase just didn t, f [...]

    11. CuriousLibrarian on said:

      I was torn between giving this book 2.5 stars and 3 It s not so bad that it deserves 2 stars though.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 have bee [...]

    12. Jane Potter on said:

      Such a fun novel I love the concept of a mother daughter book club I want to return to Concord after reading this book loved all the allusions and discussions about Little Women a favorite classic of mine The stories were engaging and easy to get into I enjoyed the multiple perspectives I was surprised how easily I identified with the characters as the girls are middle schoolers But it was a lot of fun to read The ending sure wrapped up everything super well and almost idealized life for the gir [...]

      I ve started reading books alongside my daughter to encourage her to read We take turns picking books I wanted to pre read this book because I had heard it was popular but didn t know enough to feel comfortable recommending it I was so disappointed The writing is poor It passes back and forth through four narrators But they all have the same narrative voice which is confusing The characters are very stereotypical Also, the last section summer is sensational and wholly doesn t match the rest of t [...]

      The first book in what is possibly my granddaughter s favorite series A welcome entry in an increasingly hard to find genre Cheerful, realistic fiction appealing to girls 8 13 This one is fun, with lots of literary Little Women references I had trouble distinguishing the four girls voices sometimes, but that s a minor quibble I did think a few elements were a little predictable Spoiler alert Megan s turnaround but they lead to a satisfying conclusion that kids will relish A wholesome book with s [...]

      This book is the first book of the Mother Daughter Book Club and i loved it This book follows four girls Cassidy The Tomboy , Emma The Writer , Jess The Animal lover , and Megan The Fashionista and their lives starting 6th grade and being in a book club started by the girls mothers while in yoga class This book was very cute and was very easy for me to get into I just started high school so i was having some of the same feelings these girls were having their first day Overall I will give it a 4 [...]

      I love books with a series That way if I like the first book I can read the next book afterwards And that s what I loved about this book After I read it, I started the next one immediately I m not quite finished on the second yet The way friendship was displayed in this book was great It gives you a good idea about friends and foes coming together to read in a book club with their moms which not all of them are happy about every week And you get to see how Jess, Emma, Megan, and Cassidy handle t [...]

      Warning there is some spoilers I really really liked this book I found it about two or three years ago and didn t think I would like it because it was an easy read and back then I thought that I was too good to read those books since I was in the advanced readers group Nonetheless I picked up this book and today I still love rereading it Emma Hawthorne, Jess Delaney, Megan Wong and Cassidy Sloane are as different as water, earth, air and fire But when their mum s all but Jes s absent one , Phoeb [...]

    19. Rachel B on said:

      Firstly, this book implies the girls book club is reading Little Women, but actually they are reading Little Women and the sequel Good Wives I went to all the trouble to read Little Women to avoid spoilers, and three quarters of the way through the book stumbled into major spoilers for the Good Wives This is so frustrating, as there is no warning or FYI of any kind in the beginning of the book or the ad copy I dropped an entire star for this reason alone.The story itself was okay, nothing specia [...]

    20. Audrey on said:

      Let me start with the positives I liked how each chapter opened with a quote, and I enjoyed learning about Concord I now think I would like to go there to visit, as the historical sites sound really neat I also want to go on a sleigh ride like they did in the book 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 geared toward [...]

      Most of the time I like to talk about books with magical powers and magical creatures like the book I recommended for Friday However, sometimes I like to talk about books that are firmly grounded in our reality but still have something magical about them magical writing, magical characters, a magical charm to the reading experience In other words, sometimes I like to talk about books like The Mother Daughter Book Club I am exceedingly fond of this book Not only is it filled with great, individua [...]

      i loved this book because i love it when all the chapters are different people in the book This book would be perfect for people who like realistic fiction If you like to read realistic fiction books then you will like the mother daughter book club This story focuses on four girls named Emma, Jess, Megan, And Cassidy and their moms who started a book club and then at the end of the book they all get to go to New York and see Jess s mom, then they get home and go in a picnic andJess s mom comes h [...]

      REVIEWThe 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, Megan w [...]

    24. Jenny on said:

      I didn t like this at all for the first several chapters Megan and the Fab Four are downright bullies and I didn t care for them at all I also was annoyed that at first, all of the girls in the book club were annoyed that their moms had started the book clubne of them seemed to have good relationships with their moms I recognize that tween girls and their moms sometimes don t get alongme have very strained relationships But I have daughters in 5th and 7th grades and while there are moments when [...]

    25. BookKids on said:

      I am exceedingly fond of this book Not only is it filled with great, individual and well rounded characters, but it also is a well written book In it, 4 girls, Megan, Cassidy, Emma and Jess only two of which are friends are horrified when their mothers decide to start a mother daughter book club Even the girls who like to read don t want to participate in a club with girls they hate And to make matters worse in some of the girls opinions they have to read Little Women instead of something moder [...]

    26. Melody on said:

      People who know me will be surprised to see me reading this non dystopian, non historical series, but I am friends with Heather, and it s always interesting to read outside one s comfort zone 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 caricatures than not, most notably the mean girl Becca and her mother, the fat assed Mrs Chadwick I also [...]

      The Mother Daughter Book Clubby Heather Vogel Fredrick 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 secrete [...]

    28. Rachel Duncan on said:

      I actually really enjoyed this book It wasn t quite good enough for a 5 star rating but I would guess that this is a series that will just get better the books I read I loved the characters and I was quite surprised by how un caricatured they were Very impressive I also loved seeing all the character s perceptions of each other The main improvement I can think of is a cohesive plot each girl had challenges, but sometimes things felt a bit scattered.

    29. Phoebe on said:

      This book is amazing and I loved it One of the things I liked most about the book was when something really happy for the protagonists happened but the book wouldn t even be over yet I also liked how in the book every chapter would be from a different protagonist s point of view so then you could see what all of the protagonists were thinking I highly recommend this book

    30. Quince Winstyn on said:

      This book is my favorite out of all the books in the series Why Because in the first Mother Daughter Book Club they are younger and their story is appealing Unfortunately, I started reading the series from the middle to the last to the first so I got the pleasure of reading this marvelous book last Just a tip If you ever want to read this book, start with the first one
