Choosing reading material for a ten year old girl has proven challenging.
We recently received a copy of Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks for review from Thomas Nelson Publishing.
My daughter read the book in two days and said she loved it and could we get more books in the series.
The synopsis (via Tommy Nelson):
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.
I appreciated that April Grace was given some adverse circumstances and she faced them with ADULT GUIDANCE and GRACE. This is a positive message for our girls. We want them to rely on Christian adults and the Bible in all situations.
We heartily recommend Cliques, Hicks and Ugly Sticks and are thankful to the Tommy Mom program for providing us a copy for review!
