Wonderful Wednesday's Review {Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks by KD McCrite}

This week on
"Wonderful Wednesday's Review,"
{This is meant for tomorrow but I just couldn't wait}
 
I decided to finally finish a book that was given to me from
BookSneeze.com. It was actually an ebook so it took me longer to get into reading from my tiny iPhone. But, I was determined to finish so I could give a proper review. I am a better reader when the book is in my hands and I can actually see the words. With that said, I chose to read....
 
Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks
(The Confessions of April Grace) 
by KD McCrite
 

About:

Just when April Grace thought the drama was over . . .
After an automobile accident, Isabel St. James—resident drama coach and drama queen—needs help putting together the church play. Mama insists April Grace and Myra Sue will help. April’s fall is now devoted to spending every afternoon with Isabel and Myra Sue—if anyone is as big of a drama queen as Isabel, it’s Myra Sue. Plus, she’s dumb. (Okay, not dumb, but "older sister dumb.") If that’s not enough, Isabel is wreaking havoc in the community trying to get Rough Creek Road paved, the new boy at school will not leave her alone, and then Mama drops the biggest bombshell of all . . . April Grace is no longer going to be the baby of the family . . .
Girls will completely relate to April and love her sense of humor as she deals with siblings, boys, and the many changes that come with growing up.
 
In my opinion:
 
The moment I started reading Cliques, hicks, and ugly sticks, I knew I would enjoy it. I love when books have young narrators because it reminds me of when I was a child. It was hard being in middle school and trying to fit in. However, April Grace shares her story of change and doing the best she could. I loved April Grace's personality. She was very opinionated and knew exactly what she wanted. I loved some of her ideas and she made me laugh a lot throughout the book.
 
This book was definitely meant for the younger crowd. I felt that it was appropriate and had a good message for young readers. I would definitely recommend this book to some of my nieces.
