it was great for little girls starting to read more grown up books with lots of humor they can relate to. lots of action with little lessons behind it. its easy to pack around and not to many pages to get easily bored.
Amazingly real book. Seven years ago I started a 'Monday Morning' ladies group called the Sister Chicks (I feel like I could have written this book). Even tho' we ladies are all in our 60's, we still think like young mothers. Pg 103, "You are gifted and capable beyond your wildest imagination; you have not yet begun to explore all the ways you can make your life count for eternity. Strengh and dignity are your clothing!" These are words and thoughts I'd tried to impress upon my 22 lovely SisterChicks who meet each 'Monday Morning'. This is my first Robin Jones Gunn book, but not my last.
This book was worth the time, but didn't make the impact on my that Sister Chicks Do the Hula did. Robin Jones Gunn continues to be one of both mine and my 12 year old daughters favorite authors. She loves the Christie Miller series.
