Life lessons Feb 13, 2008
This book is about Charlotte Ramsey, who is a new girl at Abigail Adams Junior High. Charlotte has a history of "first day at school" blunders and this one has got to be her worst. At lunchtime the tablecloth gets stuck in Charlotte's zipper causing trays and food to go flying all over the people at her table. Even though she has a difficult start in her new school, Charlotte eventually becomes friends with the least likely people.
This book deals with everything from everyday to unusual situations that a typical 7th grader might have to deal with. I like this book because it is realistic and funny, and because it gives practical advice for girls. The characters are so engaging that by the end of the book, you want to read more. Luckily for you, this is the first of the Beacon Street Girls series so there are more to read.
I would recommend this book for anyone from 5th Grade to High School or for anyone who is looking for some great advice on how to deal with sticky situations. It might also be used by life skills groups for discussion on topics such as dealing with divorcing parents, making new friends in a new school and the "big class field trip," It's also a really fun book for anyone who likes realistic fiction.

mom's review Jan 15, 2007
I am a mom of an avid reader, aged 9. I am always concerned that, because she can read well, she will choose books that may be challenging in length and context but may be too advanced for her socially and emotionally. I just finished this, book 1 of the series, and am happy to say that this looks like a series I can get behind 100%. The series revolves around the friendship and loyalty of a group of diverse middle school girls who create a club in an attic. In book 1, the author tackles the subjects that kids at this age deal with (diverse backgrounds and interests, snobs, crushes, learning diabilities - one girl has a laptop not because she's a rich snob but because she has a learning disability)in a language they understand...hip slang, cyberspeak, etc. The values of loyalty, honesty, civic duty and friendship are paramount in this story. Moms and Dads, fret not. Only positive messages found in this book. I look forward to my daughter reading these and getting hooked on a series based on strong girls and their friendship.
A Delightfully Funny Read! Jan 4, 2007
This is the first installment in the Beacon Street Girls series. And, by far my favorite book of them all. Probably because this story is being told from the views of the original four BSGs (Beacon Street Girls). It's a fun read for girls my age (11). But you have to admit, the whole "As soon as they meet, they despise each other and in the end are friends" thing gets really old and overrated. I understand the reason they didn't like each other was first impressions, but still, "Never assume", that's my motto. It may surprise people but Annie Bryant, is not just one person writing these funny but somewhat serious books, but a whole team writing together. And from reading these books I realized that I have a bit of all the BSG in me. I love creativity like Isabel, I can imitate voices like Maeve, I love writing and reading like Charlotte, I love animals like Avery, and I love fashion like Katani. I really enjoy the message of being yourself. So really, there's something for everyone in these delightful books. The summary of the book is basically Charlotte is new and she doesn't hit it off very well with the other girls when they should be trying to be working together as they are working on an assignment. It's a very funny read and I definitely reccomend it!
