Book Review - American Girl: Like Sisters - Caitlin in Charge

American Girl: Like Sisters - Caitlin in Charge

About the Book
What animal makes the loudest sound?

Caitlin knows it's the blue whale, of course! She has a talent for trivia and is delighted when Emma, Zoe, and Natalia vote her captain of their school trivia team. She's determined to lead them to victory through multiple levels of competition-all the way to the top prize, a trip to New York City!

But being a team captain is more complicated than Caitlin thought it would be. Her drive to win is starting to create a rift between her and the other girls. When a potential advantage for an upcoming contest falls in her lap, Caitlin has to decide what to do. Is this the big break her team needs. . . or is it cheating?

My Take on the Book
This is a great addition to the American Girl series. The book was easy to read and had some great characters that your kids will love. The book introduces the characters to some challenging situations that they must overcome. My daughter liked seeing how the characters in this book had to work through the challenges to figure out the situation for themselves. As a dad, I loved that the book had a great plot, but also characters that were not one dimensional. I also loved that the characters had to figure out issues together and along the way they teach the reader some valuable lessons.
