48. The Sisters Club by Megan McDonald

            In this J-level book, Alex, Stevie, and Joey are sisters.  That means they come with all the happy, mad, sad and hilarious sister moments.  The book begins with Alex(the oldest) teaching the younger sisters how to paint their toenails with marchmallows between their toes.  This is just one activity of the sister club.  Alex is the oldest in seventh grade and gets her own room where she practices her lines all day long.  Stevie is the middle sister in fifth grade.  A lot of times she feels all alone but she is reassured that she is the glue of the family.  Joey is the youngest in third grade.  She doesn’t feel like she is assigned enough homework, so she makes up her own.  Each sister has to go through their own transitions when Alex gets the lead in a play, their mom gets a cooking show on tv, and the Sisters Club is disbanded.
