"If you've read the first book, you can't miss this one

It's great to be back with Cassidy, Emma, Jess and Megan, (and their families!!!!!!!!!!) and to watch them grow and learn in 7th grade! This is probably my 4th time reading it so that says a lot. And just saying, EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS BOOK, FINISH THE SERIES. YOU WILL PROBABLY FEEL DIFFERENTLY. TRUST ME! NEVER GIVE UP ON BOOKS!
Though I feel that the truce (if you've read it, you know what I mean) seemed to hurried, I love this book, and was constantly laughing, smiling and wishing that I was one of the girls. I can relate to all of the girls. I love fashionable clothes like Megan, am a bookworm like Emma, LOVE math and science like Jess, and am extremely extremely athletic like Cassidy. These books are one of my favorite books of all time.

"This book was just delightful! I can't even explain how much I enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed the book because it related to Anne of Green Gables. Jess, Emma, Megan, and Cassidy have a book club with their mothers. They are all very shocked when the mothers decide to invite Becca Chadwick and her mother to join the bookclub. (They don't really get along) Through the twists and turns of the girls lives they continue to worry about Jess having to give up her family's farm. They manage to save it...read the book to find out how. I would definitely recommend this book! I can't wait to begin the next book. Which is actually the first book. I read the second one first. (on accident) I encourage everyone to read both." said.

"Much Ado About Anne Review

As usual, Heather Vogel Frederick serves up lots of spice and charm in the second installment of her The Mother-Daughter Book Club series. This was my second time reading this book, as I was rereading this series before I read the last book in the series. I truly missed reading about these girls, and I am so excited to finish the rest of the series, although it's bittersweet because IT'S ALL OVER AND THEY'RE GOING TO COLLEGE WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE OH MY GOODNESS EIGSSGLWYSTSNEKEYS!!!!!! *takes deep breath*

Anyways, it was definitely a different experience reading the first book this time around because I know what happens four books from now, and I know people change and it's weird to see them before they changed. The last time I read this book was probably 2009 and I loved it so much then. It's a little different for me now, since I am no longer about the same age as the girls in the books, but I can still connect really well to the characters.

Something I also do with this series is I read all the books they read before I read the book. I read Little Women before I read this first book, I had already read all of the The Complete Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set that they read in this series before, I read Daddy-Long-Legs & Dear Enemy, and Just Patty, and When Patty Went to College (even though I don't really remember if any of the girls in the books read them I wanted too because of the occasional quotations from the other books Ms. Webster wrote in the books. I know, OCD. ;) I also read Pride and Prejudice (which caused me to buy Barnes and Noble's leatherbound volume of all of Jane Austen's works, Jane Austen: Seven Novels, which I have really enjoyed reading with my book club), and I read the entire Betsy-Tacy series which are definitely my favorites of all of the books I read for this series. =) You can read my pretty bad review for it here: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/...
but I would recommend researching my later reviews for them (don't worry the spoilers are hidden ;) because they are much better. I also read the three companion novels, Winona's Pony Cart, Carney's House Party: A Deep Valley Book, and Emily of Deep Valley, which were phenomenal as well. And, finally, I read Jane Eyre in preparation for reading the last book of this series (and also for a book assignment for school that was free choice and I actually ended up not liking it; you can see my review here: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/...), Wish You Were Eyre, which I still have yet to read because I need to finish rereading the series first. It's so big and final and sad and OHMYGOSH IT CAN'T BE OVER PLEASE HEATHER DON'T MAKE IT BE OVERRRRRR!!!!!! *calms down*

I also read most of this series, with my book club. We're not a mother-daughter book club but we do consist of one adult mom who is not any of our mom's, and we absolutely loved it.

Anyways, about the book. I have to say that this book is not my favorite of all of them. I do love it, I love all of the books, but if I had to pick a least favorite it would be this one. It is a really fun book, but I feel like it was lacking some of the MDBC spark. As I stated earlier, she does serve up lots of spice and charm (I don't think she knows how not to), but I felt like something was missing. Then again, it might just be the fact that things change from book to book, and no book is ever going to be as classic as the first. I did find myself cracking up quite a lot during the course of this book though, which was a good point for me about the book. The escapades were still Mother-Daughter-Book-Club-classic in style, and I feel that overall it was a wonderful addition to the series. Was that a little too contradictory? It's just hard for me to describe how I feel about this book...it's a little bit of a contradictory feeling.

Overall, this book was another amazing installment in The Mother-Daughter Book Club series that I truly enjoyed. You should definitely read this charming and unique sequel in the series; it is one not to be missed. This series is one every woman should read in her lifetime.

" The mother daughter book club continues, this time reading Ann of Green Gables. This humorous story is told from the point of view of each of the four daughters. " said.

" This book was awesome, just like I knew it would be. On to the third:) " said.

" This book is really good and taught me a lot about friendship. " said.

" This book was awesome. I read the first one and I didn't think that the first was better than the second. I greatly enjoyed it. There are moments when I LOLed. ANd I don't LOL at books often. Ask my sister, Anna.I loved this book. " said.

" This is a really cute series. I recently read Anne of Green Gables for the first time, so wanted to read this as the girls in the series read Anne in this installment. The main characters are about 13 years old and have all the things going on that new teenagers do. A fun read, even for an old girl like me! " said.
