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 .
Cliques, Hicks and Ugly Sticks is the second book in the "Confessions of April Grace" series by KD McCrite and now I feel like I need to go and buy the first one.
First of all I have to say I love reading tween and teen books. This book is about an 11 year old girl who is starting junior high and dealing with changes in her family and you can really relate to what she is saying and feeling about all the struggles of school and family. This girl is so darn funny I couldn't help but really laugh out loud in a few parts. I told my daughter what this book was about so I'm going to start her off with the first one and I know she is going to love it being an 11 year old herself and starting 6th grade next year and dealing with her siblings. This book is an excellent book and there is no worry about what your kids may be reading about its Christian based.
