Six friends from Grover Cleveland Elementary School have one thing in common: they love Double Dutch.
After one of the girls sees an advertisement for a statewide Double Dutch competition, Rachel, Ming, Tanya, Carla, Lindsey, and Nancy decide to step up their practice time, become a team, and jump into the opportunity to compete in their favorite activity.
The girls have no idea of the surprises that lie in store for them. They work hard learning the ins and outs of Double Dutch, and they also learn to face their fears, reach out to others, and pull together as a team.
As the Double Dutch Club finds out, the road to the competition isn't easy, but it is definitely worth the ride. When it comes to friendship (and to Double Dutch) they've learned what to do-just jump in!
This is a great book for middle schoolers about making friends and keeping them. Also about suffering disappointments & sharing them with friends. Characters were well drawn. Read morePublished on March 26, 2012 by D. L. Rhodes
