School is coming to an end, and with it comes Emma’s birthday. The Mother-Daughter Book Club celebrates together, and all the girls (and their moms!) get tickets to visit New York with Jess’s mother!
On the big trip, each of the girls gets a wish granted–Emma gets assistant writer credit on HeartBeats, Megan is going to be profiled in a new fashion magazine for teens, and Cassidy catches a foul ball at the Red Sox/Yankees game (and the Red Sox sign the ball, too)! Only Jess seems to go away empty-handed. Her mother is staying in New York.
In August, the club gets together at Orchard House (Louisa May Alcott’s home) for a special picnic. Jess gets a very special surprise, which is a result of the New York trip. The book ends on a very happy note!
