A "post-it" on the front cover of the book lets readers know this is Lizzie's personal copy. And humorous comments and doodles in the margins of the interior are all Lizzie's, too. Featuring a "scholarly" introduction, the book centers on Darcy Lou, a young woman living on the Louisiana bayou of the late 1940s, whose orchid-growing mother, Tallulah, and her mother's crew of eccentric Cajun poker-playing friends, work together like fairy godmothers to help Darcy Lou attend the lavish New Orleans ball of her dreams. A "lost classic," The Orchids and Gumbo Poker Club may not have been an Oprah Book Club selection, but it's sure to delight any Lizzie McGuire fan!

    Great Book

    This seemingly short and childish book sends a great message to kids and adults alike-- be who you are, and not what others want you to be. I thought this was a great book and should be read no matter what your age is.

    This book is very good. In the Orchids and Gumbo Poker Club, yo

    This book is very good. In the Orchids and Gumbo Poker Club, you learn about the life of a girl named Darcy Lou. Darcy Lou is growing up with her mom and her three aunts, Aunt Jo-Jo, Aunt Dalphia, and Aunt Maribelle. Darcy Lou is growing up in the Bayou of New Orleans. Her mother runs her flower business from their home. Every week her mom and aunts have the Orchids and Gumbo Poker Club meeting. Darcy Lou’s dad died and she wants to know what happened to him. Every year on Darcy Lou’s Birthday she wishes to know what happened to her father. Every year her aunts would make up a new story of why her dad died. When Darcy Lou is eleven she finally goes to public school. Darcy Lou only has one friend, which is Gator. Darcy Lou meets a young man named William Chatelaine. Darcy Lou is fifteen when she wishes that she could get a kiss from William at the ball. Will Darcy Lou and William find that they love each other? I recommend this book to young girls everywhere. This book is about a loving mother, daughter relationship, with a young girl who wants to find her happily ever after. I enjoyed this book very much.

    pretty good

    Though the Tv series made the book out to be much more wonderful (and thicker). This book does make you think. A mere 121 pages sends a message that you should always forgive and stand by the ones you love. Even if it is a short book...it does send the message.
