Young Emma's mother is the middle school librarian who came up with the idea of the mother-daughter book club. There are four members: Emma who wants to be a poet, Emaa's friend Jess who lives on an organic farm, Cassidy who like to play hockey and whose mother used to be a model, and Megan, who's very popular. Together they have picked "Little Women" as their first book. Between the monthly meetings, there's a lot of drama in the lives of these girls. As they navigate the social structure of the modern middle school with popularity problems, parents and teachers, and of course, boys, they find they have a lot in common with the March girls from Alcott's classic book. Together they find renewed bonds and great respect for their mothers.
