Average GBC reader rating [elpix_average_rating]

Meet the Sisters Club: twelve-year-old Alex, aspiring actress and born drama queen; eight-year-old Joey, homework lover and pioneer wannabe; and smack in the middle, ten-year-old Stevie, the glue that holds them together — through dinner disasters, disputes over stolen lucky sweaters, and Alex’s going gaga over her leading man. Playfully weaving Stevie’s narration with Alex’s scripts, Joey’s notebook entries, and hilarious elements such as “How to Swear in Shakespeare” and “Dear Sock Monkey” letters, this hugely engaging novel showcases Megan McDonald’s ear for dialogue, comic timing, and insight into the ever-changing dynamics of sisterhood.

GBC Review by Sofia S.

The Sisters club is an interesting story of three sisters who all have names that would usually belong to a boy. Alex, the eldest and the bossiest is trying out for a school play, Steven (or Stevie) is holding the sisters together and settles the fights in the family, is the glue and Joey is the baby of the family. The book is told in the point of view of Stevie, and how she laments over being the middle child. She believes nothing good is ever in the middle of something. Being born into a family of actors, each sister tells of the stresses of life. There are three books, and each sister narrates each one. This is a pretty good book, and I would recommended it for kids ages 8-12.

Happy reading!

One thought on “The Sisters Club by Megan McDonald”

  1. I absolutely loved this book! There is the perfect amount of hilarity, and seriousness (is that a word?) and, of course, middle school. With three books in the series, Megan McDonald has made the book seem so real, and yet it is somehow not real. The Sisters Club is an amazing book, and I’d recommend it to anyone!
