Publisher's Description

Just when April Grace thought the drama was over . . .

After an automobile accident, Isabel St. James—resident drama coach and drama queen—needs help putting together the church play. Mama insists April Grace and Myra Sue will help. April’s fall is now devoted to spending every afternoon with Isabel and Myra Sue—if anyone is as big of a drama queen as Isabel, it’s Myra Sue. Plus, she’s dumb. (Okay, not dumb, but "older sister dumb.") If that’s not enough, Isabel is wreaking havoc in the community trying to get Rough Creek Road paved, the new boy at school will not leave her alone, and then Mama drops the biggest bombshell of all . . . April Grace is no longer going to be the baby of the family . . .

Girls will completely relate to April and love her sense of humor as she deals with siblings, boys, and the many changes that come with growing up.

KD McCrite grew up on an Ozark Mountain farm along an old dirt road, just like April Grace Reilly in the Confessions of April Grace series. She loves writing stories that make people laugh and think. For a while, she worked as a librarian, but these days she sits at her desk and makes up stories.

    I love April Grace and she comes back in the second novel with as much humor and smarts as she did in the first book! In this novel however things get pretty serious with her mother's pregnancy and the baby! My heart went out to April Grace and Myra Sue because I knew things would be okay, but I didn't know how bad it was going to get! Overall, it was a great read and I'm definitely looking forward to the third book!

    This review was written for Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks - eBook.
    Clicks, Hicks and Ugly Sticks (Thomas Nelson, 2011) written by KD McCrite is the second in a series of books about April Grace. I have not read the first book but was able to pick up the story line from the very beginning. As you read the opening lines you learn that Isabel St. James is a recovering hypochondriac. She once thought she had hoof-and-mouth disease just because she skittered through the barnyard while the cows were there waiting to be milked.

    The more I read the story, the more I wanted to learn more about 11-year-old April Grace who obviously must live on a farm. In the first chapter we learn so much about her--not just age, family, hair color--but that she tells things in her very own way like it really is and in a funny way.

    In the story we learn that April must move in with her sister, Myra Sue, to give up her room for Isabel (the drama queen) and Ian St. James. Her sister is trailing after dumb ol' Isabel like she's the best thing since sliced bread. If that's not bad enough, April's starting Junior High and discovering how friends can really change over the summer, and not in a good way. Then her mother is not herself and starts being grouchy all the time. And then there's a boy at school who keeps looking at her. How is she supposed to deal with that situation when she has to spend so much time helping Isabel and Myra Sue?

    I decided to read this book because I have a daughter who I think could relate to this story. It is a book that she will want to read from beginning to end.

    I would highly recommend this book to teenagers as well as women who would love a have a chuckle now and then and related April Grace to their life when they were her age.

    I was given permission from Thomas Nelson to review this book and give an honest opinion. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. I can't wait to go back and read the first book and then hopefully the rest of the books in the April Grace series.

    Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks is the second book in the Confessions of April Grace series by K.D. McCrite. This book is all about April Grace Riley and how she helps put together the church play, the new clique at school "the Lotties", her Grandma's boyfriend, and doing Algebra.

    I enjoyed reading this book and the first book, too! I got the first book, "In Front of God and Everybody" at a conference, so I was excited when I found out that I could review the second one. This is a hilarious book, because of April Grace's sense of humor with her confessions! One of my favorite parts was when April Grace accidentally leaves all of her school books at her house when she leaves for school.

    This is a great book, and it is enjoyable for both young girls and adults. I definitely recommend reading it!

    I just LOVED the teenager, April Grace.

    Her voice is so unique, quirky and funny and sarcastic and surprising. I laughed out loud while reading this book more than five times, which is extremely rare for me, except when I'm reading Georgette Heyer (but that's another thing altogether).

    I loved to see her struggle and see her grow, I loved her disarming honesty to herself (and the reader) and I loved what she learned about family and relationships with God.

    I didn't care about how her mother was portrayed, it left me feeling cold and I am sure that was not the intent of the author, and also I tought there were many things going exceptionally wrong with the church and everyone's conceptions of God and what is right in His eyes. I would not recommend this book if that's what you are interested in reading about, because it is a very minor if at all part of the whole thing.

    Otherwise, it was a sweet and funny coming-of-age story, and only if the 'church' element was missing, it would make a wonderful young adult or middle grade novel.

    Rating: 4/5

    I received this book from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.

    LOVED it! I loved the first April Grace book I read and this book was just as great if not better. April Grace is such a great likable character. I love this series of book for tweens. Tween girls need a lot more books like this. Books that show life is not all roses but that family is always there for you, even if they drive you batty sometimes. This book is such a great book that shows it is hard growing up and navigating that new path into tween dom. If you have a tween girl go to your library or bookstore and grab Cliques, Hicks and Ugly Sticks while your there grab the first one In Front of God and Everyone

    thank you booksneeze for allowing me to review this ebook. I enjoyed it a lot and glad to have it for my tween! :)
