“Beacon Street Girls” by Anne Bryant is a series of books aimed toward tween/teenage girls. The first book in the series is “Worst Enemies/Best Friends.” The premise of the story is that Charlotte, who is a tween, has moved a lot due to her father being a writer. When they move again, he asks Charlotte where she wants to go and she says that she wants to go to Brookline, Massachusetts where she was born and lived for the first four years of her life. Charlotte’s mother died when she was four.

Being a new girl is hard and starting junior high is hard, so Charlotte had a lot to be worried about when she starts at Abigail Adams Junior High. It is through her experiences here that she learns that first impressions are not always correct. We follow Charlotte as she navigates being the new girl, finding out that not everyone is as she thinks they are, that families are made up differently (some have no mother, others are adopted, etc.) , that having a crush on a boy can cause problems between friends and more. We don’t just see things through Charlotte’s eyes, though. We also have narration from the other girls in the book that become Charlotte’s friends.

I would highly recommend this book to tween/teenage girls. The characters are all plausible and the situations that arise are common enough that any teenage girl can relate to something in the story. This is a series that parents don’t’ have to worry about anything being inappropriate in it such as language or sexual situations. ( )

Charlotte is new in Boston and has a hard time making friends. Even though in this story the girls fought they realized how important their friendship was to them. ( )

The first book in a great series for middle school aged girls! This series will really appeal to tweens. It is told from the points of view of 4 seventh grade girls- Charlotte, Katani, Avery, and Maeve- in alternating chapters, class assignments, journal entries, and e-mails.
Of the four characters, the book focuses a bit more on Charlotte who is the new girl and is always getting herself into embarrassing and humorous situations. Her English teacher assigns the four girls to sit together at lunch for 8 weeks and then complete a writing assignment about what they learn.
I will recommend this to middle school girls and expect the series to be very popular! ( )
