Dear Pen Pal, by Heather Vogel Frederick
Another well done entry in the Mother-Daughter Book Club series. This time around, the girls are reading Jean Webster's saccharine and kind of gross Daddy Long Legs, but luckily the plot of the new book didn't mirror the plot of the classic as tightly as previous ones have, and the characters continue to develop. A bit of a suspension of disbelief at the end, but enjoyable nontheless. For my sins, the next book, coming out in August, is, inevitably, based on Pride and Prejudice. Pies and Prejudice, it will be called. Honestly, people, other women than Jane Austen have written books. It's true- they're out there.
