Publisher Comments:

The book club

is about to get

a makeover....

Even if Megan would rather be at the mall, Cassidy is late for hockey practice, Emma's already read every book in existence, and Jess is missing her mother too much to care, the new book club is scheduled to meet every month.

But what begins as a mom-imposed ritual of reading Little Women soon helps four unlikely friends navigate the drama of middle school. From stolen journals, to secret crushes, to a fashion-fiasco first dance, the girls are up to their Wellie boots in drama. They can't help but wonder: What would Jo March do?

Acclaimed author Heather Vogel Frederick will delight daughters of all ages in a novel about the fabulousness of fiction, family, and friendship.

Synopsis:

What begins as a mom-imposed ritual of reading "Little Women" soon helps four unlikely friends navigate the drama of middle school. From stolen journals to secret crushes to a fashion-fiasco first dance, the girls are up to their Wellie boots in drama.

Synopsis:

When a blizzard threatens to ruin Valentines Day, three seventh-grade friends make and distribute fortune cookies to their lonely neighbors—and confront the secrets theyve been keeping from one another.

Confident Kate doesnt notice much but the latest gossip, and shy Georgia cant say out loud whats always on her mind. Theyre joined by observant, careful Olivia, whose epic, single-minded crush on PBJ (real name: Phillip Becker-Jacobs) is starting to frustrate them. Using fortune cookies that mysteriously always seem to speak directly to the person who opens them, the three girls try to work together to bring some love to their building while reminding each other why theyre such good friends to begin with.

Synopsis:

Eleven-year-old Remy loves Seagate, the island where her grandmother had a house and where her family spends every summer vacation. But this year’s different. Remy misses her dog, Danish, who recently passed away. The usual Seagate traditions don’t feel the same—and neither does her relationship with her two best friends, Micayla and Bennett. Micayla’s family is moving to Seagate year-round, and she’s spending more time with the year-round kids. Bennett’s doing “boy stuff” with new kid Calvin and his snobby sister Claire. Remy takes comfort in the company of Dog Beach—which is where she hatches her plan to bring her friends closer and recapture the Seagate magic. This start of a new series is filled with summer treats, activities, and the spirit of friendship and invention that are Greenwald’s trademarks.

Praise for Welcome to Dog Beach

"Remy’s quiet tale of change and growth marks a promising start to a new series."

--Kirkus Reviews

"Greenwald (My Summer of Pink & Green) gives Remy a candid and relatable voice in this first book in the Seagate Summers series."

--Publishers Weekly

"Dog devotees and aspiring entrepreneurs will find a friend and mentor in Remy, who adroitly combines her puppy love with a knack for business. She’ll also make a good companion for those self-serious tween readers looking for a little sympathy on the perplexing and often unpleasant road to adolescence."

--Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Hannah-16 , July 2, 2012 (view all comments by Hannah-16 )
I can explain this book in 2 words, friendship, and life. Not all life in general, but the life of a handful of middle school girls. After Megan, Emma, Cassidy, and Jess's Mothers decide that they are going to create a Mother-Daughter Book Club, the girls are absolutely terrified, and say NO. But, eventually they all become friends after helping , or standing up for each other. somehow through this crazy thing, that I call life. They all end up enduring an amazing time, and some classic masterpieces! The girls also learn some very key life lessons. This series will touch any girl or Mother's heart! Recommended age 10+.
