Bailey Fish Adventures #2: No Sisters Sisters Club: A Bailey Fish Adventure

Bailey Fish Adventures #2: No Sisters Sisters Club: A Bailey Fish Adventure Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bailey Fish, 11, is just starting to enjoy living with her grandmother in Central Virginia when strangers arrive--a father she does not know and an annoying half sister, Norma Jean. Norma Jean is not like Bailey's best friends, who are more like real sisters. Norma Jean even sees the good in Justin, a boy who has bullied Bailey. Bailey and her friends form the No Sisters Sisters Club to exclude Norma Jean. But attitudes change when the sisters must work together to solve the scary mysteries of Bailey's stolen kitten, and a fire at an old house. Then, a drive with their father for ice cream is not the adventure Bailey expects. Historical nuggets include the Revolutionary War era ride of Jack Jouett to save Thomas Jefferson, and the Civil War Battle of Trevilian Station. Discussion questions, glossary, photos, maps and resource materials.

Synopsis:

Eleven-year-old Bailey Fish is starting to enjoy her new life in Virginia after her traveling mother sends her to live with her grandmother, Sugar. Suddenly strangers arrive--a father she does not know and an annoying half sister. Norma Jean smiles too much, touches everything, and is not like Bailey's best friends who are more like real sisters. Norma Jean even sees the good in Justin, a former bully, who is raising a pet crow. Bailey and her best friends form the No Sisters Sisters Club to keep Norma Jean out. Attitudes change when the sisters learn that they must work together to solve the scary mysteries of Bailey's stolen kitten, and a fire at an old house. The, a drive with their father for ice cream is not the adventure Bailey expects.
