Julie P.

I read this book a few weeks ago and I can't get over how amazing this story is!


Florence sounds like such a spirited 93 year old!

Gwendolyn B.

Wow. I'd love to meet this woman. Guess I have to settle for reading the book - and I will soon!


I just got a copy of this and am going to suggest it for my book group. It looks so good.

Dawn - She Is Too Fond Of Books

This is such an incredible story ... makes me want to go Dumpster diving for treasure :)

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
