Bronte's Book Club

Title: Bronte's Book Club
Author: Kristiana Gregory
Genre: Juvenile Fiction
Pages: 149
Date Finished: 18 July 2008
My Rating: 3

This was a fun book that would make a great summer read, or anytime read since summer is almost over, for a preteen girl or anyone who enjoys books and words.
Bronte Bella (I love that name!) has recently moved from New Mexico to the beach in California. She is determined to make a fresh start, make new friends and be a better friend than she was when she lived in New Mexico. This does not prove to be easy for shy Bronte. Until one day book loving Bronte decides to start a summer book club in an attempt to meet people and make friends. After a rocky start, and many attempts by Bronte to keep the discussion on the book, she does start to make friends. There is popular Willow who seems to be hiding something, Lupe who wants to be an actress and has a flare for the dramatic, and Jessie who is quiet and does not really seem to want to be a part of the book club. Together these girls have some adventures and learn what it really means to be a friend.
This was a fun book about trust and friendship.
