Thomas Nelson has a terrific new series for junior high age, entitled, “Confessions of April Grace.” As part of the Tommy Mommy program, I’m privileged to bring to you a review of Book #2 in the series: “Cliques, Hicks & Ugly Sticks.”
For a couple examples of the confessions of April Grace:
On the clique at her school:
“There are four other girls in her little group and they call themselves ‘the Lotties.’ Melissa and I call them ‘the Snotties.”
(Sounds a tad on the mischievous side of Anne of Green Gables to me. 😉 OH, how I love Anne.)
“Well, I’m not called April Grace Reilly the Queen of Brilliant Ideas for nothing.”
Based on my review of this book, the series is cute and fun, with lots of personality thrown in. There are some life lessons thrown in too, but overall, the book is an easy read with no heavy plot and no huge amount of depth. Just typical junior high scenarios…peer situations, social agony, and quick wit. Add a few untimely pimples and some mood swings, and you’re all set. 😉
This book is a clean read and enjoyable for preteen girls. If you’d like to win one, just leave a comment below with your favorite book you read in junior high/ middle school. We’ll leave this giveaway open until midnight EST and I’ll announce the random winner tomorrow.
So, what was your favorite book in junior high?
