The Unbearable Book Club for Unsinkable Girls by Julie Schumacher - NOT RECOMMENDED
I initially thought the book might have a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants feel but the girls' relationships with each other were weird, awkward, and confusing. There was a strange twist at the end, the writing style was stilted and choppy, and there were random scenes (girls kissing each other) that could have been completely left out. One thing I did like about the book was that at the beginning of each chapter, a literary term (i.e. foreshadowing, epiphany, climax etc.) was defined and the content of that chapter dealt specifically with that term. Most definitely not a keeper though. MS/HS- NOT RECOMMENDED. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
