Synopsis:

The girls of the Mother-Daughter book club are up to a variety of holiday-themed antics—and nothing is going quite as planned. Megan and Becca have boy trouble on their families’ joint Christmas cruise, while Cassidy and her family find a college-viewing trip to California has them second-guessing which state to call home. And poor Emma and Jess end up snowed in overnight in New Hampshire after an unexpected blizzard hits! Considering that the book club has just read Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, a creepy New England inn is not the ideal place to be stranded.

Between fights, ghosts, and blizzards, everything seems to be going wrong. Will the girls be able to find their holiday spirit in time for Christmas?

Home For The Holidays is a satisfying addition to the always delightful Mother Daughter Book Club series. This time the girls and their mothers read the Betsy-Tacy series by Minnesota author Maud Hart Lovelace, a lesser known but excellent set of books. As usual with Ms. Frederick's books, it is not necessary to have read the Lovelace books to enjoy Home For The Holidays. But for any child (or parent) who has read them, she hits no false notes, and includes many clever references. For fans of the MDBC series, it is the perfect holiday story. My 6th grade daughter read it twice through and declared it was the best one so far. It is heartening to me that with so many "kid lit" novels on the market that "write down" to readers, Ms. Frederick echoes the excellence in storytelling and language use found in the great novels on which she bases this series. I do not want to give anything away, so I will just say read it. You will not be disappointed.
