    Hmm. Well. Not too good, not too bad. For Home for the Holidays, I didn't like it the first time, and then I reread it and began to like it. I reread this one, and it still just struck me as cheesy and super unrealistic.Like how everything ties together perfectly. If you go back and look at all the descriptions of Sophie before, she's obviously not trying to be nice. Also, Heather Vogel Frederick has a lot of errors in all her books. Like, when Jess's goat Sundance has a kid, Jess names it Sunbeam. But then in the next book, its name is Cedar. Also, Sugar and Spice were given to Jess and her mother TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME for Valentine's day, but then in Wish You Were Eyre Jess says that one of them was there before, and the other one came later. Sorry for that rant.But yeah, also how each of the girls (besides Becca haha) even some of the Wyoming girls and Savannah, are obsessed about one thing and are really good at that one thing, and know exactly what they want to do with their life. I mean, come on. Stop being so good at stuff. :) Ok bye

    I like these books overall, and I really have enjoyed reading this series. But, there was one thing in this book that really turned me off.In every book of the series, the author consistently praises every single book mentioned and puts on a pedestal every author. In this book, even Cassidy, the reluctant reader, loves Jane Eyre. But, for some unknown reason, the author totally pans The Scarlet Letter. She could have simply not even mentioned The Scarlet Letter, but she seems to have gone out of her way to discredit it. Not a single character likes it - not the daughters, not the mothers, and not even any of their counterparts in Wyoming. What's the deal?! What does the author have against The Scarlet Letter? Both Jane Eyre and The Scarlet Letter were required reading in my high school days, and as I recall, neither was especially well-received, but The Scarlet Letter was probably the less unpopular of the two simply because it had an edginess to it. Does the author object to the fact that rather than the more innocent variety of romance as seen in other book club books, The Scarlet Letter deals with the more mature topic of adultery? Was the author trying to make some kind of morality statement?! Hester Prynne may not be as proper as the other female heroines the club has met, but she is certainly a strong character - something I would think the book club members would appreciate! The Scarlett Letter is even oftentimes considered an early feminist piece, certainly worthy reading for modern young women and appropriate content for students studying classic American literature, despite the author's grievance. I seriously wondered why the author would so uncharacteristically reject such an important piece of writing - and then I realized that all other book club books were written by women! Does the author have something against male writers in general, or against Nathaniel Hawthorne in particular? Whatever. I think her blanket disdain for The Scarlet Letter was unfair - the characters never even tried to justify their dislike of the book - and out of place for a series that not only celebrates literature in general but specifically focuses on strong women in literature. For a series that is supposed to encourage young readers to discover strong female characters in literature, the author really does a disservice by turning her young audience off from The Scarlet Letter.Okay, rant over. Now about the book itself...After six books with variations on the same themes, I think I just got tired of the Mother-Daughter Book Club formula. Once again, the first adjective that comes to mind in describing this book is "over-the-top". I could accept a circle of friends that included a former supermodel, a former soap opera star, and a millionaire software entrepreneur. But now we have a group of high school sophomores that include a professional fashion designer, a published author and mayoral campaign manager, a nationally competitive singer, and a player on the nation's top girls hockey team!? Who would have thought that in the end, the most relatable and down-to-earth character would be Becca Chadwick?!Once again, one of the primary conflicts stems from a new girl in town with whom the girls do not get along. Once again, the girls deal with their social frustrations by engaging in a mean-spirited prank. It's lame that the girls in this series pine for kisses from their boyfriends and wonder what their boyfriends are up to instead of just initiating kisses themselves and simply talking to their boyfriends. It's lame that the girls think second cousins have no right to be friends (re: Simon and Sophie), even though it's already been established that Annabelle and Tristan have a close relationship. I have to admit, though, I liked the way the book ended with Megan's sentimental round-up of Mother-Daughter Book Club moments. Despite all that I've complained about above, I think the book - and presumably the series - ended on a high note. There is a sense of finality at the end of this book, though I had originally expected the series to take the girls all the way through senior year in high school. But like I said, I think all the familiar themes have been exhausted, so if this is the last book in the series, that's just fine with me.

    I don't read many continuing books in a series for review on Mother Daughter Book Club.com. My review philosophy is that if the first book in a series is strong enough to stand on its own, then it's a good choice for book clubs to read and discuss while letting individual members decide whether to continue with the series.I occasionally make exceptions and the six-novel-strong The Mother-Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick is one of those. How could I not read a fictional series about the very real life topic I dedicate my website to? And yet, I may not have continued if Frederick hadn't made it so easy for me to fall in love with her characters and want to continue to read their stories book after book.With the release of last book in the series, Wish You Were Eyre, I am sure I will not be the only reader conjuring up images of what happens next with Emma, Jess, Megan, Cassidy and Becca as well as all their families. Alas, "next" will have to remain in my imagination.That desire to follow characters through to the next step in their lives is the mark of a great series and a skilled writer who can bring the people in her stories to life. In all honesty and disclosure I have to say that I have come to call Heather Frederick a friend over the years she has been writing this series, but I certainly would not have continued to read and review them if I didn't believe they were a great choice for mother-daughter book clubs and young readers everywhere.Frederick manages to capture the daily issues that pre-teens and teens may face while also giving readers things to hope for and dream about, like international travel, successfully identifying passions for careers, starting businesses, and more. She has a skill at helping her characters speak up for themselves and solve their problems, even if they stew in them for a while. Her latest installment and last book in the series, Wish You Were Eyre, is another delightful example.Once again Frederick weaves the reading of a classic novel, this time Jane Eyre, into the story line of her modern-day girls living in Concord, Massachusetts. There are problems to be solved, misunderstandings of other people's actions and intentions, and strained mother-daughter relationships to be found for sure. But you will also find different characters of all ages exploring what it means to be in love, supporting their friends, exploring new adventures and more. It's a satisfying finale to a beloved series.The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    I really enjoyed this book. Wish You Were Eyre is the 5th book in the mother daughter book club series. Unfortunately, it is the last, and I will miss all the characters. What I enjoyed about not only this book but the whole series was that I really knew and understood every single character. They were well developed, well described, and I kept wanting to read more.In Wish You Were Eyre, Megan Wong and her grandmother Gigi get to go to Paris over spring break. Megan being a teen fashion designer, her dream is finally fufilled. Meanwhile, back in Concord Massachussettes, Sophie Fairfax, related to Annabelle Fairfax (the evil, bratty snob that related to the family that had done the house exchange with the Hawthornes a few years back), comes as a foreign exchange student from France, and has to stay with the Wongs. She is a big disrupt to everyone, and especially to Emma, who feels Sophie is stealing away Stewart, her boyfriend. In addition to that, Mrs. Wong is running for marry, and there's also a marriage twinkling in the possibilities. All through this, the girls maintain in their Mother-Daughter book club. I would recommend this book to people who have already read the rest of the books. This was a "good-read".

    I finished! This book is amazing, just like when I read it the first time. I love Megan in Paris, Becca in Mankato, Cassidy and her love for Hockey. Emma and her books. Jess and......Darcy! I LOVE Darcy, he is the kind of guy I want to date when I grow up. It was amazing to watch the girl grow up, and I have to say that, hands down, this was the best Mother Daughter Book Club book in the series. If you haven't read the books, all I have to say is that you are missing out. And I am not stretching the truth, you must read them all.

    This book tells a story about a mother-daughter book club who has five main characters. Each chapter is about a different girl. This book has some drama when an exchange girl from Paris moves into Megan's house because GiGi invited her in. The mother-daughter book club is reading a book by Charlotte Brontë called Jane Eyre. The author tells a wonderful tale of five girls each looking for thier "Mr.Rochester." I absolutely am in love with this book! I highly suggest if you like books that have different plots, friends working together, and a hint of drama

    This last volume of the Mother-Daughter Book Club series has the girls, now sophomores, reading Charlotte Brontë's classic Jane Eyre. This series has been very fun to read, despite how improbable and unrealistic some aspects are (with the girls getting book deals, fashion lines, etc.). Of course most of those things could happen, but it's a bit of a fantasy how frequently they do happen in this series. Still, I love the series' focus on close-knit families, small town community, homey details, loyal friends, and—of course—some of my favorite books. (Speaking of which, this volume includes several references and tie-ins to the Betsy-Tacy series, which the club read in the last book. There is even a trip to Mankato!)There was a lot I enjoyed about this story, but also a few things which I didn't care for. I don't feel any of these things warrant forgoing the book, but I do want to bring them up. For starters, the girls are now older and most of them have boyfriends. This book includes several kisses and references to kissing, which is probably pretty standard for the genre; I just find it a little silly. To their credit, most of the boyfriends in this are very nice, gentlemanly guys. Plus, I believe the intended age bracket for this series is around middle school, so other than a few kisses things do remain relatively innocent. There is also a bit of that attitude of "maybe we won't be together forever, but let's just have fun while we are." I dislike it when dating is encouraged as a sport, and I feel like there is increasing pressure on kids to pair-off earlier and earlier. I just don't see the point in pursuing all that perfectly avoidable heartache in high school, and it all just feels kind of shallow to me. I might be over-thinking this a bit, as most parents or readers probably would not have any issue with this aspect of the book, but I just wanted to mention it. The second main thing that bothered me was how Megan handled her Paris fashion week critique of super-skinny models. I commend the author for even attempting to tackle this subject, but it is such a tricky issue, and I don't feel that it was addressed with quite the amount of delicacy and scope it requires. Posting photos of models stuffing themselves with macarons and writing phrases such as “Cheeseburgers for all” is really not going to help the issue. Also referring to someone as "too slender" implies that there is an ideal body type that should be achieved. People do come in different sizes! Simply having the extreme reverse attitude towards food and weight is not going to solve the problem. In her oversimplified assessment, Megan does throw around the cliché terms "normal" and "moderation," but she never addresses just how she defines them. Those two words can represent such a wide disparity of meanings. I'm probably a little too sensitive about this topic, as I've dealt/am dealing with an eating disorder myself. I just wish I had the eloquence to unpack and address my concerns in a lucid manner. As is, I can only flounder about trying to say that it just seemed like the handling of this issue—while definitely well-meaning—was also rather clueless. Plot-wise, there were some elements of this book that felt like rehashing of previous storylines (e.g., Sophie—the antagonist that eventually comes around—is a lot like what happened with Becca and Savannah, respectively). I like how the Sophie thing turned out, though. The message was very affirming of the importance of family, and it also encourages one to see things from another person's point of view before judging or categorizing them. Like the previous books, the chapters are divided up with different narrators, and at times it seemed like some of the individual character's storylines went on hold until her next section. Also, I had a hard time believing that Rupert Loomis and his aunt came all the way from England just to deliver Emma a copy of her book . . . and that they just happened to come in time for Gigi's wedding. To me it seemed like a way to get them into the picture to tie-up their storylines. Along the same lines, what did the Berkleys and Annabelle do for two weeks in Concord before the wedding? Didn't they have school? That also seemed a bit like a deux ex machina. Speaking of puzzling plot devices, why did Courtney (Cassidy's sister) have mid-terms after spring break? And how did she manage to get out of them to come to Cassidy's game? Oh, and why was Megan so concerned about Sophie and Stewart? They are second cousins, for goodness sake! I know close cousins married in Jane Austen's age, but not today . . . do they? Also—and I'm probably missing something obvious here, in that prank they played (which, by the way, seemed pretty juvenile and mean), how do they know that the back of Sophie's shirt was even filmed? There are also quite a few other minor continuity errors, and some noticeable typos/editing errors. To my delight, the author manages to mention a lot of the things I love about the eponymous Jane Eyre: her "moral courage" in "stand[ing] up to temptation," and “[h]er clarity of thought, strong conscience, and backbone”—to name but a few of the stellar qualities of Charlotte Brontë's strong, intelligent, and multi-faceted heroine. I also learned a few facts about Brontë's life and career. Finally, I must mention what a cool idea the quilt Summer made for Gigi was, and what a great wedding gift. I now want a quilt just like that!

    This year the Mother-Daughter Book Club will be reading Jane Eyre. Not everything always goes smoothly for the girls, but they at least have their friends in the book club to help them through the storms of life. When Sophie Fairfax comes to live with the Wong's for a year jealousy flairs. The girls band together to pull off a prank that will put Sophie in her place, but will it backfire on them?Emma is feeling that her boyfriend Stewart is paying too much attention to Sophie. When they both are enlisted to help Mrs. Wong campaign for mayor their time together is limited and both begin to feel the strain.Jess has a sub in her calculus class who accuses her of cheating. At risk is her scholarship and her position as a soloist in her Madrigirls singing group.Cassidy is not sure about her relationship with Zach. She likes him, in fact he is like her best friend, but she is not sure that she wants him as a boyfriend. As always Cassidy is the one to come up with the plan for Sophie's embarrassment.Megan is feeling the most hurt by Sophie's arrival. Sophie seems to gain the attention of everyone she meets. Megan's mom and grandmother are among Sophie's fans. Even Megan's new kitten seems to like Sophie better than Megan! Megan is looking forward to her trip to Paris with Gigi. She can't wait to visit the fashion shows and see all of the sites of France.Becca has been working at Gigi's tea house to help her family with their finances while her father is out of work. Becca wonders if there is a Mr. Rochester "out there" for her somewhere. I've come to love all of these girls! They and their mothers make me laugh. Sadly this is the last book in The Mother-Daughter Book Club series. I have to say that if it had to be the end of the series I am quite happy with the wrap-up. Although I was kind of hoping that the author would carry the series through the girls' senior year. But alas, that is not to be! I've enjoyed each book in the series. I have loved reading each girls story and how they have grown up throughout the series. I found the writing refreshing in each book without any need for adding sexual situations or language to taint the quality of the stories. I had borrowed the first few books from the library, but went ahead and bought all of them last year so that some day I can pass them on to my grand-daughters. The Mother-Daughter Book Club is one of my favorite series and I will miss them very much.

    Although I relished the references to one of my all-time classic reads, Jane Eyre, and enjoyed the idea of a Mother-Daugher Book Club, allowing mothers and daughters to bond through literature, there was too little of the book club in this title, to my way of thinking. I'd have forgiven that if all these girls hadn't been such super-achievers. It's not that I have anything against superachievers, mind you. I simply found it hard to believe that these five high school sophomores had already accomplished so many of their life ambitions already. One leads her hockey team to a national victory; another helps her madrigal group take second place in the nationals. Another one blogs and designs a clothing line that actually sells enough to earn her money for her college fund while still another girl has already written and published her own book. Add to all that overachievement, a grandmother who owns and runs her own bakery/coffee shop, a mother running for town mayor, a school newspaper editor or two, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed. The girls' fathers and brothers are nice enough, but they don't play very big roles in this title, and their boyfriends seem to exist in order to provide just the right amount of drama and tension. The author does a good job of portraying how girls can misunderstand each other and how important family and friendships can be, and I'm sure fans of the series will be said to see it come to a close with this, the sixth title, but I just kept shaking my head at the waste of money--a Hummer rented for a sixteenth birthday party, after all? I did like the message of empowerment, though, as the girls used Jane Eyre as inspiration to act bravely by "getting their Jane on," as they affectionately described it.

    I am in the acknowledgements which means that this book is awesome! Okay since that does not constitute a book review or anything except gloating I will review the book. The girls are reading Jane Eyre and there is excitement in Concord, there is a French exchange student Sophie who comes to stay with Megan and her family. Each of the girls learn a lesson relating to Jane Eyre. Megan gets to go to Paris with Gigi for Fashion Week and the descriptions of Paris made me miss it so much. I also loved Becca's trip to Minneapolis and Mankato. I like the progression of Becca's character and that she really has become less of a brat as the years go by. I love the literary names of the characters that we run into. This really is a great series of books. It is a great way to get girls interested in reading the classics mentioned in these books too.

    Okay this book was good, I finished it all the way through but it was also horrible so I'm just going to rant to you, Cathy, about this book. First of all the lies in this book were so unrealistic; every single one of the girls had a perfect family and they got to do whatever, whenever. No matter what time none of their parents were strict or nothing. It was like they lead perfect lives. And no mother is so cruel as Megan's to not appreciate their daughter!And I don't really care if Sophie has a bad life she wrecked everything in this book. She was SENILE. The only good thing was some of the bitter truths like when Becca was envious of Megan's trip to Paris. AND YOU KNOW WHAT MADE ME MADEVERYONE WAS DATING EACH OTHERS BROTHER! IT WAS DELIRIOUS! NOBODY IN THEIR RIGHT MINDS DATES THEIR FRIENDS WAY-OLDER- GRADUATING BROTHERS. UNREALISTIC TO THE BRIM.AND MEGAN; SHES SIXTEEN SHES NOT A CRAZY DESIGNER SHE JUST RANDOMLY GOT POPULAR IT MAKES NO SENSE . THEY ALL ACT LIKE SOME CRAZY IN LOVE MESSED INDIVIDUASBut it is interesting to read if you like stories in which they basically just tell their lives stories. No major suspense or cliffhangers.Oh my this has made me very heated I'm going to go read Something In Between now.

    Let's be clear: this book deserves 4 stars. It was one of my favourite in the Mother-Daughter bookclub series and that means a lot, as I enjoyed them all.BUT... I had to take one star off for all the French mistakes. When you have characters supposed to be native French speakers, please check their French. And by that I don't mean try and remember your high school lessons, I mean, give the book to be proofread by a French native speaker. I swear, they aren't hard to find in the USA. Also, please note é, è and ê are not to be used randomly and interchangeably, the accents actually change the way we pronounce the word (crazy, I know). If I never see "ma chèrie" again, it'll still be too soon!Now that I got that off my chest, the book was incredibly cute... the girls are nearly all grown-up too and it's so nice to see them becoming more and more interesting. I gonna miss them a lot, I gonna miss Concord, and yet, I like it when an author can put a stop to a successful series before starting going round in circles with pretty much always the same story, or, the other extreme, making the stories so far-fetched, they become totally improbable. So, kudos for that.I've asked myself who was my favourite daughter and I couldn't believe it when it turned out I don't have one. I like them all equally (even Becca, she really got some more depth in this volume). I started the first book cheering for Emma (I mean, a bookworm named Emma, that was a little too easy, right?) and ending the last one finding great qualities in each and every girl (and they're not really Mary Sue either... well, except maybe Jess, but you kinda need one in such books). I think it says a lot about how good Heather Vogel Frederick is at creating characters, that's why I wanted to stress it out here.Oh and I gonna miss those girls (yes, I'm repeating myself, but hey, it's hard to finish a beloved series).

    I picked up this book looking for something that might tempt my eleven year old daughter. I had high hopes for it but came away quite disappointed. It was a struggle to finish. I had trouble telling the girls apart-- chapters alternate with the story being told in first person by the five? six? (See, I can't even remember how many) friends who are members of this mother-daughter book club. The biggest challenge was that there was very little difference in voice for each of these characters, making it extremely difficult to tell who was who. I frequently forgot who the current narrator was despite the author having given them all dramatically different talents to distinguish them from each other. This may not be a problem for someone who has followed the series from the beginning, but it does not work well for someone like me who is new to the series.There were a few minor things that I found laughable-- all the girls are apparently astoundingly gifted in their individual talent areas (by the end of the book we have a fashion designer getting bites in Paris, a published author, a national hockey champion, and a national singing contest finalist) but my biggest complaint was with the plot. The conflict at the end is barely a conflict-- and it is only a conflict because of something that I found completely contrived. (Someone is going to break off a wedding because a group of teenage girls weren't being friendly enough? Really? In that case the man has no business getting married in the first place.) This book will be interesting enough for certain readers, I'm sure-- it just wasn't my cup of tea.

    The Mother-Daughter Book Club is back, and for this final installment, they are reading Jane Eyre.The girls are all struggling with various issues-- Becca is waitressing at Pies and Prejudice, but Megan's grandmother is buys planning their trip to Paris... and gets involved in a romance! Megan is distraught that Sophie, the cousin of Annabelle (aka Stinkerbelle), is an exchange student from France living with her family. Megan's mom is running for mayor, and the girls are helping. Jess is involved in a MadriGals contest but running into problems at her boarding school, and Cassidy is keeping up with her hockey. On top of everything else, the mother-daughter book club from Wyoming that was pen pals with the group in Concord comes to visit over spring break, and the week after, Becca gets to go to Mankato with her grandmother. There is also frenemy drama, boy drama, and ... whew. I'm tired just thinking about everything that went on in this book!Strengths: The best covers EVER. Big shout out to Lucy Ruth Cummins who designed them all. Not a surprise-- she also designed Belly Up and Cordially Uninvited, both of which I really like. Fun stories, good friends, and while I am sad the series is over, I'm just as glad to see what else Frederick will do!Weaknesses: It's a bit of a hard sell to interest girls in books about a book club involving classics, so these aren't the hottest circulators, but they do a nice steady business!

    The book entitled "Wish you were Eyre" by Heather Vogel Frederic is the sixth and final book in the wonderful Mother-Daughter book club series. It is an incredible ending to the series and is extremely surprising, to say the least. This book focuses in the book club's sophomore year in high school, from January to June, and trouble is stirred up in many ways during this time. Sophie Fairfax, a cousin of "Stinkerbell's", arrives as an exchange student in Concord and is taking the joy out of Megan's world and is asking for revenge from the rest of the book club. Also, the girls' Wyoming pen pals are coming to visit. This book also includes how spring break and vacations lead to an unlikely outcome, including a wedding. With all of this to deal with, as well as Emma's brother Darcy and Becca's brother Stewart graduating from high school, the future for everyone is very unclear. Can the Mother-Daughter book club overcome the hurtles in front of them, or will their friendship be torn appart?I loved this book because it is filled with surprises and adventure, while still being something that everyone can relate to. If you like realistic fiction and dramatic comedy, this series is for you.

    This is the best book to end the best series EVER!! The clan begins reading Wish You Were Eyre with their Wyoming pals. Megan and her grandmother finally set off to Paris for fashion week, something Megan had been dreaming of since the series started. While she is in Paris, Megan's mom decides to run for mayor. Known for her crazy tactics, Megan's friends Emma and Stewart try and help Megan's mother win the race. Jess is going to the finals with her singing group the Madrigals, and Cassidy has mad it to the national hockey finals with her team! This book exceeded my expectations of what the final book in the series would be! It wrapped up any ideas that had started and made me very happy. Although I was extremely sad to see the series that I love end, I was so happy to see what the characters had ended up doing. It was so cool watching the characters develop from the first book (6th grade) to the last book (12th grade) and how certain friendships were strengthened and others became weaker. This series and book are a must read!

    I have loved the Mother Daughter Book Club Series. yet in this book there was a few low points. HINT this review does have some spoilers. I loved Mademoiselle Velcro I totally felt like she was a popular girl at my school. I also liked how they visited many places with their pen pals. Jess in this story, I kind of felt bad for yet I like how Heather makes sure that her readers can relate, and I really enjoy that I can. I've myself have been accused of cheating and I know people who also have been accused. I'm really glad she added that! By far my favorite part is Megan going to Paris, I loved how we heard what fashion Megan was wearing and viewing at the fashion shows. OTP Simon and Megan! I was also totally surprised that Gigi was proposed to. Thanks For Reading. Cant Wait for the next book!!!

    Wish You Were Eyre: I love the Mother Daughter Book Club Series, and it was really sad to me that this was the last book. The series mainly appealed to me because it had realistic characters, put in realistic situations. I like how each character has their own unique identity which isn't blown up. the author doesn't make the book perfect, and the characters all have their flaws, which made it a great read. I really think I would have thought about Sophie in the same way from Megan's point of view, but if I were Sophie I would also be able to relate to how she handles the situation. Both sides have flaws, Sophie is too flirtatious and keeps to herself when people are making a forced effort to be nice to her, Megan is quick to impulsively judge Sophie over a cat and cousin, and is purposefully rude. Neither character is right, but I think the book balanced out in the end.

    The mother daughter book club is a great book I will never forget. This book is about all of these girls that have formed a book club with their mothers. The girls have different personalities and different problems. This really relates to life because you do have problems like Megan (a character in the book) where your jealous of them because their smarter than you or prettier than you. But that can't let you down. It also relates to real life because you can't judge someone by their cover if their related to someone that you can't stand doesn't mean there the same way, you have to get to know them better to judge them. I really enjoyed this book because of the fact they have chapters where the characters each have their own chapter where they talk about their life and what's going on in the group of friends. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

    Okay, so I enjoyed this book, especially the references to Jane Eyre which is one of my favorite books of all time! But I thought the girls' stories got a little unrealistic. I realize it's still a story, but it seems to me a bit much (for a realistic fiction about teens) to have one friend be on a nationally winning hockey team (with an ex-supermodel/tv star mom), one to be a paid fashion designer (and go to Paris Fashion week at 16), one to be a star singer (with a ex-soap star mom), AND one to run a successful mayoral race and be a published aurthor...I mean, Becca is the only sorta normal girl. Seems like a girl could feel like quite the looser after finishing this book. Don't get me wrong, I still liked the book; I just felt like by the end it was a little over the top.

    Wish You Were Eyre is the sixth book in the Mother-Daughter Book Club Series by Heather Vogel Frederick. I had a lot of pet peeves with this book. I probably wouldn't have minded as much if I hadn't read the other books in the series, but I have, so you can read them at the bottom. I'll start with the positive things first, though. Jane Eyre is my very favorite book. I adore it. So I was happy the book club was reading that this year. I loved reading about Megan's trip to Paris, and totally I agreed with her about the model thing. So many of them are so unnaturally skinny! I liked the wedding. ;) I liked Darcy and Jess. I liked Cassidy and Tristan. Okay, now the pet peeves. Firstly, Megan's blog, Fashionista Jane. I went on a bit of a rant about this in one of my status updates. I am a blogger and have been for four years. I know what it takes to get your blog read. It takes a LOT of hard work, and dedication, and marketing, and commenting on others' blogs. Your blog, in most cases, will not just skyrocket like Megan's did in the book where she created it, to the point where everyone in her school has seen her posts, even though she's completely anonymous and has told no-one except her friends about it. Then she leaves her blog. For TWO YEARS. TWO YEARS! When she comes back, she instantly has all of her old readers reading her blog again. After two years. A LOT can change online in two years. None of the people who read my blog and commented on it two years ago still read it now. You can tell she has a ton of readers because Wolfgang tells her she's bringing "lots of traffic to the Flashlite website". Flashlite is HUGE. And Megan is bringing TRAFFIC to it? WHAT? So yeah, I was pretty annoyed about that. Secondly, the mean girl plot. SOOOO tired of it!! It has been in almost every book. The formula gets old after awhile. Thirdly, the girls were being brats. Sophie had done NOTHING. And yet the girls had it in their minds that they didn't like her, and boy, when those girls don't like someone, they really let everyone know it, that's for sure. So this book gets three stars. I liked it OK, but I wouldn't read it again. 3 stars out of 5.

    Wish You Were Eyre is by Heather Vogel Fredrick and is a drama. Megan and her friends and family are living a normal life until Sophie Fairfax moves into Megan's house and things change. This book takes place in the present-day time. The main characters are Megan, Mrs. Wong, Gigi, Emma, Cassidy, Jess, Darcy, Simon, Stewart, Becca, Sophie, and Mr. Fairfax who is Sophie's grandpa. Most of the teenage girls are trying to figure out and get through problems that they think are caused by Sophie. They can not get through some of them. I think this was a great book. It was so interesting at all times, but there were so many different characters it was sometimes hard to remember which one is which. This book is apart of a series I will definitely keep on reading them. Overall this book is great.

    The girls and moms are all over the place. The book this time is Jane Eyre. Megan goes to Paris with Gigi and has a wonderful time, while Becca grumpily goes to Mankato, where she actually meets a Mr. Rochester. Cassidy is having second thoughts about Zach. The Wongs host a French student, who starts flirting with Stewart and makes Emma jealous. How will things turn out?

    So far, out of all 6 books in this series that I've read, this one is my favorite. The writing in this book has improved so much since the first book and it really added to how I feel about the book as a whole.
