Book Review #21
Chicks With Sticks (Knit-wise) by Elizabeth Lenhard
Rating: one star (out of four)
The third book in the Chicks With Sticks series. It is Scottie, Amanda, Bella and Tay's last year together, next fall they are off to college, with the exception of Tay, who still has one year left of high school. The refuge they have taken in knitting has helped them for the past couple of years, but Scottie doesn't know if it will be enough to last through college and wonders if this is the last year of the Chicks With Sticks.
This book was okay at best. I read it because I had read the previous two and wondered if it would have any cool knitting aspects, since I am a knitter, I really appreciate the knitting lingo. This book was more about the relationships of the girls and Scottie's fears that she would not be able to cope with all these new changes. I was somewhat unimpressed with how the characters played out and sometimes I just wished that some of them would grow up. I'd say it was Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants meets Knitting, a worthy attempt, but not quite up to my standards.
