The Texas Readergirlz met for the second time.  This time we read the second book in the Sisters Grimm series.  The Unusual Suspects picked up where the other book left off.  The conversation was great.  VERY animated!  Some of the things we talked about were whether or not the ends justifies the means (like Sabrina copying Granny Relda’s keys and sneaking around so she can save her parents, even though she knows she’s breaking Granny Relda’s rules), and not really liking a boy, then suddenly forgetting yourself and liking him when he suddenly becomes super cute (like Puck).

We missed having Madison there.  So Madison, you can weigh in with your thoughts right here!

Our first ReaderGirlz book club meeting for girls and grown ups was a huge success!  We met, had yummy snacks, made our own magic mirrors, started our ReaderGirlz journals, and we talked about the book.

The ReaderGirlz’s opinions on The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy Tale Detectives were a little mixed.  They all agreed they NEVER would have picked up this book on their own because the cover is childish.  BUT, they all liked it (to varying degrees).  In fact, book 2 in the series is our ReaderGirlz selection for next month, so that’s a pretty big recommendation.

Each of our ReaderGirlz could relate to the characters, were intrigued by the whole story, and thought there were a lot of really good and funny scenes.  The moms liked it to, so The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy Tale Detectives gets a Thumbs Up Read from us!
