The Terrible Secrets of the Tell-All Club

The Terrible Secrets of the Tell-All Club
Catherine Stier
Albert Whitman, 2009
$14.99, Hardcover
April 27th, 2012

Genre: Realistic, School Story
Age: 9+
Description: Kiley decides that the only way to find out if T.J. likes her is to start the Tell-All Club. She makes a questionnaire of 50 questions with the last one being “who do you like—really like?” and then invites T.J., Josh, and Anne to join. But in answering the questions, they cause a lot of emotional turmoil among each other. In the end, at a camp outing for outdoor education, they discover what really matters when they bond after the truth is revealed.
Opinion: This was a quick read. It’s good for reluctant readers because it has short chapters with boy and girl protagonists. Each character has their own insecurities which are addressed once everything comes out in the open and the friends finally bond as friends.
