Shannon's Review - The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel-Frederick
The Mother-Daughter Book Club
Summary: 4 different girls and 4 different families come together to create the mother-daugher book club. Their first book is Little Women by Lousia May Alcott. And even though each daughter is as different as can be and in different social cliques, they still find themselves connecting with the characters in Little Women. Can that connection with the book connect the girls in real life?
My Review: This was a quaint read. The characters are simple and a little typical of children books. I would have liked it if the story talked more about how sections of Little Women compared to their lives, but it was only done in small doses, and most of the story was about what the girls have to go through in there lives.But maybe I need to read Little Women again, there could be more connections.
This did make me want to give Little Women another read; it's been a long time for me. The second book in the mother-daughter book club is called Much Ado About Anne, and it just recently came out in the stores. I liked this one enough that I would read the second one.
