Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks- Confessions of April Grace {Book Review}


April Grace Reilly is having everything within her world change so fast. Her friends from elementary school have turned into people she barely recognizes as they head for middle school.
Aprils mom seems to be acting different, and her family has also taken in Mr. and Mrs. St. James while their house is being fixed up.
This girl is a wear her heart on her sleeve kind of girl. She is learning there are life matters that she can change, and then there are those that she can’t. She’s learning to be patient and tolerate the things she can’t help in the world.
This is a book targeted to tween girls, a book written in an open and honest tone about the difficulties of getting older during this time.
I would recommend reading this along with your daughter, and sharing with her that everybody changes and grows up and that it isn’t a big deal for people to be forming cliques, but the gossip and troublemaking during these years get worse.
