I grew up near Canandaigua and this brings me back to childhood. I can't wait to read it and thanks for the info on the signing, I'll be there.

I heard Ilie speak on a panel when I was in New York and she is just fascinating. It sounds like she was born to be a writer.

Dawn - She Is Too Fond of Books

Ooh! I hadn't read that the Clarisse character was inspired by a former neighbor on the lake - what a wonderful way to acknowlege the encouragement she gave Ilie when she was a very young writer.

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.
