Grade 5–8—The cast of The Mother-Daughter Book Club (S & S, 2007) is back. Now the girls are in seventh grade, each responding to the social and academic challenges of middle school and impending teen years. This year, the club is reading books by Lucy Montgomery, starting with Anne of Green Gables. Each member and her mother find something to relate to in the books, even the snarky Becca Chadwick who, with her dictatorial parent, joins the club. Different perspectives are provided as each chapter is told in the alternating voices of Emma (writer), Jess (farm girl), Cassidy (athletic tomboy), and Megan (fashion diva). The pace is fast, the concerns and emotions real. The girls are gutsy problem-solvers, with plausibly presented emotions. Adult characterizations, however, are almost clichéd (Emma's mother, for example, is especially bright as she's a librarian, and the patience of Cassidy's mom's love interest doesn't falter until the final pages). The resolution is a bit romanticized but satisfying. As in the first book, Frederick connects a classic title to contemporary problems.—Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at Washington DC Public Library

Much Ado About Anne (YA)
This book is the second in the young adult Mother/Daughter Book Club series. In this book, the book club is discussing Anne of Green Gables. Besides the book discussion, there is still drama going on in the lives of the girls. Jess's family may lose their farm. Emma has a crush of Becca's brother. Cassidy is resentful of her mother's romantic relationship with Stanley. But the mothers and the girls learn some life lessons from the book that they are discussing.
This book was a good, quick read. I enjoy this series. I like the book discussion. The characters are well developed and interesting. I read this book on my Kindle.
I think this is probably the best book I have ever read and its awesome because it teaches girls how to survive their insane
