Piper Reed and her friends need a clubhouse for their club meetings. The only problem is that the clubhouse cost $1999. Piper starts a party planning business and takes on other jobs. Nothing goes according to plan though.

I think the book is really cute and funny. It is one from a series of books by Kimberly Willis Holt about a young girl named Piper Reed. She is the daughter of a military man and has moved around a lot. This books and the rest of the series would be great to use with my students, especially if they too are military brats. They could be very relatable. ( )

Piper Reed and the Gypsy Club need a clubhouse. Unfortunately it will cost close to $2000. Piper decides to get a job. She puts a sign in her front yard that says she designs party planner. She decides to help her younger sister by illustrating her book and when her older sister needs someone to cover her babysitting job she takes on that task as well. Add to all of this her school project and you have a disaster in the making. This was an easy and wuick book to read, and a lot of fun. ( )

Piper Reed and her friends need $1999 to buy a clubhouse so they can have a little privacy and Piper is determined to figure out how to earn the money. So she starts a birthday party planning business, but things start to snowball (as they often do) and Piper will have to think on her feet to keep everything from blowing up in her face.

Piper Reed is a spunky, likeable, imperfect girl and the series is perfect for fans of Judy Moody and Clementine. The book has it's really funny moments and I love all the supporting characters, especially Piper's sisters. ( )
