Descripción del producto
McDonald manages to squeeze a lot of action into one story, but instead of feeling frantic, it feels like a real family.
--School Library Journal This exciting novel captures the warmth, humor -- and squabbles -- of three spunky sisters.
Reseña del editor
From the author of the Judy Moody books, this exciting novel captures the warmth, humor, and squabbles of three spunky sisters.
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.

Joey is the youngest, at eight years old. She is fun and cheerful. In this book, you get to read Joey's notebook. She rights odd little pages about Jell-O an kissing and also writes a funny column with Alex called Dear Sock Monkey. Joey is definitely closer to Stevie than Alex. They share a room and tease Alex together.
Stevie is the middle child. She is responsible and sophisticated, but she also has a fun side. Stevie and Joey annoy Alex, but Stevie is a little nicer that Joey about it. Stevie often refers to
herself as the glue in the family. She is in the middle and holds everyone together. Stevie is the narrator of this book.
Alex is the oldest. She is a big actress. In fact, she contributes to the story by writing scripts of the events. Alex is the leader of the Sisters Club. That is the club that the three girls form together. Alex may seem old and mature, but she has a soft spot for her Sock Monkey. He is the mascot of the club. Alex can be very bossy. The club meets in her room, and she has lots of rules.
The plot of this book is very cute. It starts off with the girls' mom getting a cooking show. She is home less and less. The
family struggles to find dinner every night. One day, Stevie decides to make dinner. She asks Joey and Alex to help. Alex refuses because she is preparing for the lead role in the school play. Joey and Stevie make a disastrous dinner! But Stevie continues to cook, and does better every day. Meanwhile, Alex gets the lead role in the school play of Beauty and the Beast. Her crush gets the Beast. One day, Alex invites the boy, Scott Howell, over to practice lines. Alex's parents suggest that he stay for dinner. Stevie volunteers to make dinner, which is fondue. At the dinner, Stevie and Joey embarrass Alex in from of Scott. Alex is angry and becomes hostile to her sisters. Meanwhile, the play's opening night draws nearer and nearer. During the play, Alex trips and falls. But there is still one more act! Can the show go on? Stevie, who has bad stage fright, doesn't want to ruin it for Alex, so she steps in. Alex forgives her sisters, and they all become friends.
I think that this is a great story about love and sisters. It teaches good lessons. It is also humorous. If you have a sister (or 2!) you should really check this out. I can't wait to read the others in this series!

The three sisters have the Sisters club. They have sleep overs and meetings in Alex's room. They put on plays. This is a well-written book, in a mix of traditional text and what look like journal entries with comments from the other sisters. The illustrations really add to the book. It is a really fun read and another great book for readers of all ages by Megan McDonald.
