    Fans of Heather Vogel Frederick s Mother Daughter Book Club series I m one are sure to be happy with her latest book, Pies and Prejudice This year the book club girls are adjusting to high school and reading Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice with their moms And just as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy discover that you can t always judge someone by first impressions, the book club girls are finding out how true that can be in real life as well.Some of those first impressions are made when Emma and her family move to England for a year, trading places with another family that moves into their home As Emma makes new friends, and enemies, the other girls are sizing up the Berkeley boys in Emma s house.The girls have definitely matured as they have moved on to high school, and each of them gets involved in activities and causes that help them pursue their passions Cassidy, Megan, and Emma all seem to have a good idea of what s important to them, and it s interesting to read about Jess s journey of self discovery as she seeks to f...

    It is a truth universally acknowledged is the start of one of the most beloved literary classics of all time It is also one of the main explanations of why Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice is still popular and going strong 200 years later Jan 28th 2013 is the book s birthday to be exact That is to say that she wrote universal truths to which we can relate even in our day.This is true for a set of girlfriends and their mothers who participate in a book club together and find some uncanny parallels in their own lives while reading the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy along with a host of other characters in the Jane Austen classic.Even though this is the fourth book in the series, I had no trouble picking up the book and reading the story I chose this one because of the cute title and story blurb I adore Austen s stories and contemporary books based on them There were so many enjoyable things about this book outside of the actual story First of all, each chapter takes up a different girl s perspective I was worried that it would re hash things from the previous ...

    Like the previous installments, the fourth book in The Mother Daughter Book Club series is a mixed bag I really want to love this series, and I do enjoy it, but perhaps I am just a little too critical and sensitive to its faults One thing I liked about this one is how the author wove a lot of Austen stuff into the plot She did this in the previous offerings with Alcott, Montgomery, and Webster, respectively but it really stood out to me than usual in this book It s pretty clear that Tristan is Mr Darcy, Cassidy is a sort of Elizabeth Bennet, Annabelle is Caroline Bingley, and Rupert might even be Mr Collins Then there are the other nods to Jane Austen s works, like in a lot of names and titles Knightley Martin School, Lucy Woodhouse, Annabelle Fairfax a lot of those names are from Austen s Emma This stuff is pretty obvious, but it s still kind of fun I do think the author did a good job capturing the spirit of Jane and paying literary tribute to her Although I ve watched probably a dozen screen adaptions of her work, I have never actually read any of Austen s novels myself shocking, I know This book made me want to check them out I think I might even follow some of the characters leads and listen on audio book There were quite a few continuity and editing errors which I found slightly distracting, but that is probably just me For example, on page 341, Mrs Hawthorne mentions Court...

    REVIEWHigh school drama I have been reading this series from the beginning when the girls were just starting middle school That was then and this is now The girls start high school and they are in for a whirl wind of change Emma s family celebrates her father completing his book by moving to England for the year If that s not enough, they do a crazy house swap with a British family This leaves two British boys, Tristan and Simon, living in Emma s family s home The boys are dead ringers for Darcy and Bingley in Pride and Prejudice I love how Frederick works these new characters into the story and how they relate to the classic book the girls are reading Very clever I bet you are wondering about the pies, right Well, the girls really want Emma to come back for a visit, so they get creative to raise traveling money for her Cassidy s mother is an expert baker, ...

    THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS I LOVE this book First of all, I am in love with Darcy, he is the kind of guy I want to date eventually, and second of all, I loved even though it was sad at the beginning when Emma moved to England, because the MDBC would have never taken that final trip, and seen all of the cool attractions, i she ha...

    In this review, Ill be reviewing the parts of the whole series I haven t liked and the good parts.Bad Parts 1 Stero type girls Many of the girls in the series are stereo typed girls For instance, Cassidy is a jock without good grades who doesn t like boys Megan loves boys, fashion, doesn t get very good grades, and hates sports Same with Becca I have to say, only Jess is an original character.2 They Must Be Thin Judgemental Characters In the first and second book, The Mother Daughter Book Club and Much Ado about Anne, the girls in the book club always comment on how chubby Emma is and how over weight Mrs Chadwick is Why are Emma s friends so judgemental of her weight For a girl in the same position as Emma, this might let them think all their friends notice their weight and not in a good way And maybe it s funny to talk about Mrs Chadwick that way, but the fact they mention both of these character s weights so often is a little too much Staying on the topic of weight, couldn t one character not be thin Emma goes to the rink and starts skating okay She loses weight okay But chubby Emma was a relatable character to girls their age And the same with Mrs Chadwick she goes to yog...

    When I first came across this book in the public library, I was already interested by the cover itself with the witty title Pies and Prejudice I wasn t that into Jane Austen works but was familiar with her famous novel After reading the teaser on the sleeve, I knew that I just had to read it Unfortunately, I didn t notice that this was the fourth book of the series But it wasn t a hindrance at all The author is great at giving information from the previous books so it seems like this one could practically stand on its own without any problems The idea of a mother daughter book club was very interesting to me And after reading this, I wanted to start one with my cousins as well.I also started to appreciate Austen s literary masterpieces and am now on the search for her books.This book was very entertaining and relatable to me I feel like every one of the girls has something t...

    A strong installment in the series Probably my favorite so far 3.5 stars.One quibble I wish the book club would actually spend time in discussion about the book they re reading when they have their official club meetings They simply arrive, read through the handout and eat their treats I don t know that we need to read through the discussion that would probably slow down the action But it would be nice to know it was actually happening Emma complains about her mother s handouts, but I don t know what they would do with themselves at the club meetings without the Fun Facts sheets As I said, this is a quibble, and the fact that I even think that hard about it is testament to how real the characters seem to me Also, in my previous reviews about earlier books, I ve noted the difficulty I ve had keeping e...
