So I read this book. it was absolutely BORING. I seriously don't like Emma Hawthorne anymore since after this book. but seriously, I used to like Emma Hawthorne a lot, because I was kind of like her. those girls in this book were just going camping and being counsellors for a little kid camp.

For me personally, this book was my least favorite (the worst, basically) of the whole Mother-Daughter Book Club series. It was kind of disappointing. And I agree with the third-to-last comment about Emma.

Right. So I read this. Yay me. I finished the series. Awesome.

Aaaaaaaaaaactually... No. Not really that awesome. I mean, it's been really nice to have a nice little tie-up for the story. Conclusion and everything. But I gotta say this:

I. Officially. Cannot. Stand. Emma. Hawthorn.
Honestly. In the first few books she was my favorite, the one I could most relate to. Now she's a crybaby with parents that are way nicer and friends that respect her way more than they should. Every human should be respected, but Emma just can't be. There is nothing to respect in her, except maybe the fact that she reads a lot. That's cool. Otherwise she's a sob spoiled brat who is desperate for her boyfriend who is simply too smart to bother with her. Seriously. She nauseates me. She reminds me of a Harry Potter scene (HP and the Deathly Hallows) :

"It is time you learned some respect!" -Rufus Scrimgeour
"It's time you earned it." -Harry Potter.

I feel like Harry would give Emma such a good talking-to. I wish he had. Oh well.

So that's Emma, who went from my favorite to my worst.

Then there is Becca.
She used to be my worst character. Duh. She's mean. She bullies. But by this book, she is mature and understanding and responsible. She's slightly boring in that she is very very perfect, but she's NICE. And can stand up for herself. She doesn't need a boyfriend to keep herself sane.

So that's Becca, who goes from my worst to my favorite.

And then Megan:
So Megan is just bleh. That's the only word I can think of to describe her. Her life is so perfect. Perfect guy, perfect friends, perfect parents, perfect personality, perfect talent, perfect job. Ich. Ich ich ich ich. As I said before: bleh.

So that's Megan, who went from cool to bleh.

Then Jess.
OK, so for me Jess hasn't changed that much. For the entire series she's remained sometime in the middle. Never my favorite, but definitely never my worst. She stands up for her friends, she's talented, she's kind. And it's fun to see her with Darcy. Fluff is so much fun. But she's still annoying. There isn't really anything specific. She just is.

So that's Jess, who went from eh to eh.

And then Cassidy.
So Cassidy also transformed a lot throughout the series. She goes from fun but obnoxious and tomboyish to fun but obnoxious but understanding and tomboyish to fun, less obnoxious, understanding, and still pretty tomboyish but with a boyfriend. But then this is where she stops getting better and starts getting worse, cuz the git doesn't understand that Tristan is good for her and Zack causes girls to have Zack Attacks and so is someone who makes me want to throw up. And she just in general stops getting better. In the beginning she's constantly improving, then all of a sudden there is a standstill and she's doing nothing.

So that's a pretty comprehensive character analysis, I think.

Read the book at your own risk.
