Book Description

Alex has always been the Actor with-a-capital-A in the Reel family, and middle-sister Stevie has always been content behind the scenes. But when the school play turns out to be a musical, Stevie decides that she’s tired of being the Sensible One. Maybe, for once, she’d like to be in the spotlight! Soon the dueling divas—with little sister Joey egging them on—are in a fierce competition to see who has what it takes to play the Princess. Has Stevie broken the rules by going for what she wants, or will it be Alex who hands down the biggest betrayal of all?

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–6—In this follow-up to The Sisters Club (Pleasant Co., 2003), the two oldest Reel girls, Alex, 13, the actor in the family, and Stevie, 11, the singer, clash when they both try out for the lead role in a school production of Once Upon a Mattress. As in the earlier title, Stevie is the main narrator, in standard chapters; Alex's sections are in the form of scripts, complete with stage directions; nine-year-old Joey keeps a journal and makes lists, which she illustrates with doodles. The story is believable, as are the sisters' interactions. The different styles add to the fun and help move the plot along quickly. Fans of Meg Cabot's Allie Finkle and graduates of Judy Moody will enjoy this offering.—Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KY END

4.0 out of 5 stars More Reel Fun September 19, 2009
Alex, Stevie and Joey are back for more fun! In this second book in the Sisters Club series, the three Reel sisters are struggling to keep their Sisters Club together. Alex is the actor and playwright, Joey is the reader and journal writer, and Stevie, who tells the story, is a singer and a good cook. But what would happen if they wanted to change roles? When Stevie wants to try out for the same play that Alex is auditioning for, sparks are bound to fly. Can their friendship survive?
The book is written in the same style as the first Sisters Club, with Stevie as main narrator, Alex inserting her family plays, and Joey spicing things up with her lively journal entries and sketches. The book moves quickly, and will keep girls 8-13 entertained all the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Joey Made it all Worth While February 5, 2011
A Kid's Review
I'm a fan of The Sister's Club. I got this book from the library because it's the sequel and I thought I would enjoy it. I enjoyed it enough (not as much as I liked the first one) and so I read it to my 9 year old sister. She paid attention enough so that she would understand what was going on, but really, (and she admitted it to me) the only reason she listened was for Joey's diary part. Joey's her favorite and I guess she thinks that Joey's the funniest. She only laughed at a few of the other sister's jokes. But now that over a month has passed since I read it to her I doubt that she would remember the basic plot.
All in all I thought that this book was an Ok book, still not as good as the first, but i guess I'll read the next one.
I really don't like it when the authors go overboard with sequelizing (I sure hope that's a word). I mean I love the first one, everyone loves the first one, then the author relizes that everyone loves the first one. So, they start writeing sequels that are not half as good as the first. And the sequels don't make the first one feel one-of-a-kind anymore.
Anyways, this review is for the book, not on my opinion about sequelizing.
So, Megan McDonald, thanks for another funny Sister's Club book. I'll be looking for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sisters Sequel December 11, 2009
The three Reel sisters, Joey (8), Stevie (10), and Alex (12 and three-quarters), are thick as thieves. Dramatic Alex, the oldest girl, is an aspiring actress who, despite her attempts to appear mature and sophisticated at times, still secretly confides in her beloved sock monkey. Stevie, the middle sister with a beautiful singing voice, prefers to work behind the scenes. Young Joey finds joy in almost everything. All of the girls are creative and enjoy writing in some form, which is expressed through the narrative: Stevie is the main narrator, telling the majority of the story in first-person past tense, while her sisters' contributions (handwritten and illustrated pages from Joey's journal, typed scenes from Alex's life-as-a-screenplay) are placed between Stevie's straightforward chapters. Each girl has a distinctive voice and different hobbies as well as shared interests. Their parents are fun. Though the girls have their spats from time to time, which only makes the characters and the family seem more realistic, their house tends to be filled with love and laughter.

Megan always does such a great job writing for and about this age group. I absolutely adore her books about Judy Moody and her little brother, Stink. I read The Sisters Club right when it was released, and I absolutely loved it. I consequently regularly and regularly recommended it to 8- to 12-year-old readers, especially young girls who had sisters close in age.

I was thrilled when the sequel, The Rule of Three, came out in 2009. I'm pleased to say that it not only met my expectations, but exceeded them. The Rule of Three offered compassion, cupcakes, and song. When Stevie and Alex both try out for a school production of the musical Once Upon a Mattress, chaos ensues.

More About the Author


10. The first book I ever wrote was about a hermit crab, inspired by a pet I once owned.

9. My favorite color is purple.

8. I love to read mysteries. When I was Judy's age, I read all 56 classic Nancy Drew books . . . in order! Jeepers!

7. I used to collect scabs so I could examine them under the microscope that I got for my 8th birthday.

6. My four sisters and I often made up our own language, which included the words "Hoidi Boidi", "oogey", "retzel crummypuss" and "poony-poony".

5. My favorite TV show is JEOPARDY!

4. To research my Sisters Club book, THE RULE OF THREE, I toured San Francisco in search of the ultimate cupcake. The winner: Sleepless in San Francisco. Think chocolate + coffee.

3. When I was a kid, I fell down a hill from chasing the ice-cream truck and had to get stitches.

2. When I was a librarian, I used to tell stories in sign language. That's how I got the expression "same-same" for Judy.

1. I share a birthday (February 28) with a famous princess, race car driver and gangster, a Rolling Stone, a French tightrope walker, and a winning racehorse named Smarty Jones.
