Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Being a seventh grader is tough! Being the new kid on the block and a seventh grader is worse! In this intriguing tale, four seventh grade girls are thrown together when their teacher assigns lunch group tables the first day of school. The tension they feel mirrors the lives of real girls who struggle with being themselves as well as the person others think they should be. The book's author aptly weaves together the tale of Charlotte, the new kid on the block; Maeve, the aspiring actress with a learning disability; Katina, who can't equal her older sister's sports ability and who hates it when kids tease her autistic sister Kelly, and Avery, a short, raving sports enthusiast. The girls could end up as worst enemies, except for their discovery of a secret tower room in the house where Charlotte lives. This book is the first in the "Beacon Street Girls" series. B*tween Productions successfully navigates the choppy waters of the "between age" and in so doing, allows real girls to better understand themselves and others. The book may be enhanced when mothers or teachers share in the reading with girls of this age. End matter consists of questions to think about, a multiple-choice quiz covering the book's content, sneak previews of the next book, and a Beacon Street Girls web site that serves up fun activities. Schwab Learning, a nonprofit program dedicated to helping children with learning disabilities, is promoting the book. Offer this book to any "between" girl to boost self-esteem and awareness of others' feelings. 2005, B*tween Productions, Ages 9 to 12.

KLIATT
In Worst Enemies/Best Friends, Charlotte has moved back to the US after living in Australia, Africa, and most recently, Paris. Charlotte has an unfortunate habit of spectacularly humiliating herself on the first day of school, and her first day of 7th grade proves to be no different. The three girls in Charlotte's assigned lunch group are mortified. They convince their teacher that one sleepover will provide ample time to get to know one another well enough to be allowed to eat with whomever they choose. During the sleepover, they discover that some great friendships can begin in inauspicious ways. They also discover a tower room in Charlotte's house, which they designate as their headquarters. What Charlotte has not told them is that the house does not belong to her family, and that their mysterious landlady has forbidden them to use a room without permission. If this omission is discovered, it spells disaster for the Beacon Street Girls' friendship! Despite the obstacles faced in the first book, the Beacon Street Girls are going strong in Bad News/Good News. Charlotte is beginning to feel as though she finally has a place to call home, until she overhears her father talking on the phone about moving to Oxford. Charlotte is distressed, but she quickly resigns herself to the move. However, the other Beacon Street Girls will have none of it. They are determined to convince Charlotte's father not to move. Unfortunately a new girl shows up, and her presence divides the group straight down the middle, threatening to divide the BSG forever. These two gentle books were written specifically with junior high school girls in mind. The four girls are the standard adolescent charactersone might expect to find: Avery is an athlete, Katani is a fashion maven, Maeve is a drama queen, and Charlotte is a dreamy writer. Despite their differences (or because of them) the girls naturally become fast friends. Add in a good healthy dose of lunchroom humiliation, physical comedy, a secret room, and a group of gals with goals, and you have one fun and harmless new series. (Beacon Street Girls). KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2004, B*tween Productions, 232p., each. Ages 12 to 15.

Meet the Author

The Beacon Street Girls books are inspired by all the preteen girls I've ever known. I wanted to create a world where girls can go to have fun and learn about who they are, while modeling real-life experiences. The first book, Worst Enemies/Best Friends, explores creating and testing friendships, skewed first impressions, and being the new kid at school. In the end, true friendship conquers all. Welcome to the world of the BSG!

    Wonderful Book

    This is a book about friendship. I think this is a great book. When we moved I thought I would never make friends, but I was wrong. I have made some wondeful friends. I think that some times you might not like someone, but jsut give them time and try to show you that they can be your friend.

    This book is really, really good! It tells the point of view from every one of the main characters: Charlotte, who just moved from Paris, Maeve, who wants to be a movie star, Avery, who is a star athlete, and Katani, who has an eye for fashion. In this book, you'll see how the girls go from worst enemies to best friends! I loved this book so much, once I picked it up and started reading I couldn't put the book down! My friends always asked if I would talk to them during lunch, but I was always reading! Pick up this book to have the thrill of your life!

    The Beacon Street Girls is about Charlotte Ramsey, who loves to write and is a global girl, Avery Madden, who's adopted, Korean, and athletic, Katani Summers, who's African American and has a passion for fashion, and Maeve Kaplan-Taylor, who's Jewish and loves the movies and wants to be an actress one day. They create a 'club' BSG, and they become very good friends. In the second book, they meet Isabel Martinez who loves art. I love these books!

    Funny and cute! A 5-star!

    This book is something that everyone can relate to. It's a younger, more modest vertion of the 'Clique' series. I recomend this for any girl from grades 5 to 8.

    Awesome Series Start!

    I have to admit, when I saw the book at Barnes & Noble, I didn't bother to give it a second glance. But when a friend of mine raved on and on about it, I decided to give the series a try. I'm SO glad I did! This book was incredible. It was a realistic fiction with a bit of mystery, and it kept me reading on and on until I'd finished and it was 11 at night. I loved each character's unique personality! This is a great book for girls in 6th and 7th grade.
