An interesting short read for children, and it actually catches their world; friendship, pets, jealousy-fights and pranks. When Cassandra Jones or Cassie from Texas finished from the elementary school, because the father was transfered to a new city, her mother enrolled her, (and her brother, Scot and sister, Emily) in a new school. She met a strange blonde girl, grade mate and later her best friend, Riley Isabella who also like pets and driving her little car like she love to too. She and cassie fought a lot though cassie liked making friends and doting on her dog, Adrianne. She decided to start a new club, and she realized it was going to be harder than she thought. She tried to hold it together as she and her friends manipulated their patient and supporting parents. The group including Margaret, and Danielle played with pets and made dolls.
The world of Cassie in the Seven Chapters; her club, school friends, siblings and her fights for a best friend with Riley Isabella (over her pets, a cat (blue,) and the dogs itchy and pioneer) was worth reading. Funny, entertaining, well plotted (to me)and a very good read ( and others in the series) to occupy the children.
Cassie is disappointed when her mom is late picking her up, but then rejoices when she finds out that their new house is ready. Soon after she finds a problem when a classmate who wants to be her friend doesn't get along with Danelle. Then things don't go smoothly at Girl's Club, and she is tempted to quit because she is treated unfairly. To make matters worse, her mother says no when Cassie falls in love with a dog that her friend's family is offering for adoption.
This book discusses many of the trials and tribulations preteens face with their peers and the adults with whom they interact. Marketed for children from second grade through middle grades, girls who are dealing with coming of age and family or school adjustment issues will find it has genuine appeal. Lots of dialogue and a few simple black and white illustrations. I think that teachers in grades three to five may find it a good candidate for a group discussion.
The way Jaiden's mom lit into Cassie during their altercation in the bathroom was shocking! I wouldn't want anyone like that coming at my kid, but maybe Jaidin's mom has issues of her own & forgiveness is necessary. Cassie handled it pretty well. Sometimes you have to pick your battles.
It was a great book for a young audience about working through transitions in their life. Making decisions about how to deal with being the new kid and that if a positive approach is used, the experience can be much more gratifying. That is an impressive message for children as well as adults!
Here is a great book with wonderful characters to get to know. The storyline is easily identifiable for any girl. Get ready for your new favorite book friend.
Casey was going into 5th grade at a new school and in a new town. They lined up for recess in alphabetical order, she wouldn't be last. She tried to talk to the girl in front of her but she was ignored. She played on the swings. At lunch she sat alone until Danielle came over and asked her to come set with her. The next recess they played together on the swings. After school was a different matter. Cassie, along with her brother and sister, were waiting outside. What happened next? You get to read to find out. Yipee!! Enjoy getting to know Cassie. I know I am.

This book is about a girl named Cassandra, about 14 years old. In this first book of an amazing series, Cassie is leaving her home in Texas, her friends and many more things as she moves to Arkansas. Cassie is worried about making friends, fitting in and anything else a 14 year old girl could imagine (and fear). When she arrives, she thinks it’s not too bad. But after the first session of Girl Scouts, she changes her mind. Will Cassie manage to resolve all her problems? Read the book to find out!!!
As a 10 year old, I like books with adventure and Cassie certainly has adventure in her life. This book has adventure, suspense and a touch of comedy. Tamara Hart Heiner has matched the characters with their personality perfectly. When I read the book, everything flows – it seems like I’m watching a movie in my head. Tamara Hart Heiner has successfully made Cassie come to life. I would highly recommend this book this book to girls from 9 – 12 years old.
Overall it was a good book to read
