Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks - Confessions of April Grace 2
This is the second book in the series, i never read the first one and didn't need to, to be able to follow this great plot.
This is a good book to read. It speaks of April Grace who is 11 and all the trials she is going through, with school and family. She has Isabel who took over her big sister's room (Myra Sue). Myra Sue is now rooming with April Grace and never keeps the room room clean. Her one friend turned snobby on her over the summer. Her mom is having a baby and it seems like it is a difficult pregnancy.
I would recommend teens to adults to read this, i think that the problems in this book are pretty well relate-able to a lot of people.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
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.
