Camp Club Girls: McKenzie (4-in-1 Mystery Collection)
If you are looking for a great middle school read for your daughter without edgy or inappropriate content, then you will love Camp Club Girls: McKenzie. McKenzie and her friends tackle age-appropriate challenges with input from trusted adults. Positive friendship and problem resolution is modeled with elements of faith sprinkled in without being preachy.
Wholesome books for middle school girls are very hard to come by so I really appreciate Shari Barr providing a great option for girls in middle school. I enjoyed reading the books myself. The mysteries are entertaining while not being either too predictable or too scary. Just the right amount of suspense and a whole lot of good clean fun.
The member of the Camp Club Girls include McKenzie, Sydney, Bailey, Kate, Elizabeth and Alexis. Together they help solve mysteries. In this volume, readers will track a horse thief in the west, find stolen sea lions in Oregon, track down a long lost uncle in Missouri and get to the bottom of strange happenings in Iowa.
For upper elementary girls looking for a longer book, McKenzie is a great option. It's also a great option for a reluctant older reader. It's really an entertaining option for a variety of ages and could make a great read aloud for some girl time between mom and daughters.
Disclaimer: I received a free digital copy of McKenzie from NetGalley for the purpose of review. No other compensation was received.
