My Thoughts: The Secret Sisters Club introduces Ginnie West as a 12 year old girl a few years after her mother passes away in an horse-related accident. As the girls move forward with their plan, Ginnie begins to experience mixed emotions about OSS, especially when she stumbles upon her mother’s old diaries which reveal a different side of the mother she barely remembers. One of the striking features of the story is the importance of family, including extended family.
When Monique Bucheger isn’t writing, you can find her playing taxi driver to one or more of her 12 children, plotting her next novel, scrapbooking, or being the “Mamarazzi” at any number of child-oriented events. Sign up to be among the first to hear about new book reviews, blog tours, book blasts, and giveaways as well as any information about the Kid Lit Blog Hop, and other special feature articles. Ginnie suspects Tillie has turned ‘Operation Secret Sisters’ into a scam called ‘Operation Steal My Dad.’ Things get more complicated when Ginnie stumbles across her real mom’s hidden journals. Ginnie needs to figure out what the big mystery is before her relationship with her father and her best friend are ruined forever.
What do you think of the book cover?  I like the book cover, but the girls’ faces look like they are 10 years old. Overall, what did you think about the book?  I liked the story and I liked Ginnie and Tillie and their family.  Their family was really nice.


The lines between family and friends becomes blurred as Ginnie seeks to learn more about her mother and thinks about the implications of having a new step-mother in her life.
These girls are best buddies who care deeply for each other and who wish more than anything else to be sisters. The story centres around the West family and involves not only Ginnie, her twin brother Toran, and her Dad; but there are a number of other important characters such as Great-Uncle Ben, uncle Jake, and cousin Violet for example.
Even though she realizes there will never be enough hours in any given day, Monique tries very hard to enjoy the journey that is her life. I had a girlfriend just like that and I think most girls that age have a similar experience.
These are not just characters who flit in and out of Ginnie’s life, but they play an important role in her life (as well as the overall story). She shares it with a terrific husband, her dozen children, an adorable granddaughter, a son-in-law, three cats, and many real and imaginary friends.

The reader is taken along for a roller coaster ride of emotions experienced by both Ginnie and Tillie who both have to grapple with the loss of a parent (albeit, in very different ways). Neither woman knew of the other's existence until, in her 50s, Jenny went looking for her birth family and found she had a sister.
Haghenbeck imagines that, after Frida nearly died when a streetcar’s iron handrail pierced her abdomen during a traffic accident, she received one of the notebooks as a gift from her lover Tina Modotti. Frida called the notebook “The Hierba Santa Book” (The Sacred Herbs Book) and filled it with memories, ideas, and recipes.
Haghenbeck takes readers on a magical ride through Frida’s passionate life: her long and tumultuous relationship with Diego Rivera, the development of her art, her complex personality, her hunger for experience, and her ardent feminism.
This stunning narrative also details her remarkable relationships with Georgia O’Keeffe, Leon Trotsky, Nelson Rockefeller, Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos, Henry Miller, and Salvador Dali. Combining rich, luscious prose with recipes from “The Hierba Santa Book,” Haghenbeck tells the extraordinary story of a woman whose life was as stunning a creation as her art.
