The Secret Sisters Club by Monique Bucheger

The Secret Sisters Club (A Ginnie West Adventure) by Monique Bucheger

Twelve-year-old BFF’s Ginnie and Tillie, want to be sisters. Tillie’s divorced mom plus Ginnie’s widowed dad could equal a lifetime of round-the-clock girl talk and slumber parties. Too bad Dad vowed to never marry again. Ginnie and Tillie form a secret club. They come up with the perfect mission to change his mind: ‘Operation Secret Sisters’. Before long, Tillie seems happier about gaining a dad than a sister. Ginnie suspects that Tillie has turned ‘Operation Secret Sisters’ into a scam called ‘Operation Steal My Dad.’ Things get more complicated when Ginnie stumbles across her real mom’s hidden journals. Ginnie can finally get to know the mother she doesn’t remember and Dad doesn’t talk about. When Dad discovers she has the journals, he takes them away. Ginnie needs to figure out what the big mystery is before her relationship with her father and her best friend are ruined forever.

The Secret Sisters Club (A Ginnie West Adventure) by Monique Bucheger

This was a lovely little book for preteens. It is exactly the kind of thing I would have loved to read at that age.

 

With a plot that encompasses all the things girls stereotypically like, from best friends to horses to a crazy scheme to make parents fall in love, I was reminded of the movies of the 80s and 90s, with the universally popular themes for younger readers.

 

The author’s writing style was light-hearted and fun, and though I’m far from the target audience for such a story, it made for an entertaining quick read.

  1. Thank you for your great review of my book. 🙂 I just found this as I am not very good at navigating Goodreads and Net Galley yet. My 3rd book: Simply West of Heaven: A Ginnie West Adventure is available on Net Galley this month. It answers the one arc I left open from The Secret Sisters Club if you are interested. 🙂

    Again, thank you for taking the time to read my book. The fact you liked it is even better. 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Your review made my day. 🙂

    Take care,
    Monique
