Overview

On an ordinary summer day, five girls realize that although they are right under their parents' noses, their complex family lives make them feel like leftover meat loaf.

Presto, the Right-Under Club is born, along with their motto—"We R There 4 U." They meet every week in the cozy confines of Tricia's tree house, where each girl takes a turn revealing her Right-Under problem. The others write down solutions that are discussed, dissected, and discarded until the best one remains. Then it's time to put the plan into action—for better or for worse. After all, what's the worst that can happen when five girls band together to help each other?

Christine Hurley Deriso explores the complex world of stepparents, halfsiblings, and custody battles, capturing the girls' angst and confusion while demonstrating their innate resilience and optimism.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Summertime finds a strange combination of five middle-schoolers high up in a leafy tree house in their newly formed support group, the "R.U. Club," where the secret is what "R.U." means and what they do in the club. They could not be more unlike one another and yet each deeply understands what it is like to live in a new family because of death or divorce: They feel like leftovers, "even though we are right under their noses." Each one takes a turn to describe her concern or worry. Anonymously, in written suggestions and then in group brainstorming sessions, they discuss solutions. Then as the girls put their trust in collective wisdom and thoughtfully apply effort and action through careful heartfelt adherence to club rules, camaraderie develops. Mounting interest in the characters and their adjustments to family life builds to a too-sweet conclusion, which could be redressed in a sequel, yet five genuine multifaceted characters together with their families make a large cast of characters. which Deriso handles adeptly. An interesting group that begs for a sequel. (Fiction. 10-12)

    A good book to read

    This book is a pretty good book. However, it that into it. It has an interesting concept, dealing with problems and thinking of many possible solutions to try out...even if they might not work. Then the girls try out the best solution and see how it goes. This was a good book, but not so good as I would recommend it.
