Living in Seattle we are very close to Victoria. The Canadians have tea a lot and when i was in Victoria with my husband on our Honeymoon I developed a liking for tea. I wanted to review this book because of the title. Teashop Girls
The Teashop girls is a book about friendship over tea. It’s more than that really. Laura Schaefer has written a very nice book about teenagers rallying together. Annie is 13 years old and as summer comes after the end of middle school her best friends are going different directions. They are doing activities while she is working in the tea shop they grew up in. It was there that they called themselves the Teashop girls and created their rules about their club.
"1) Teashop Girls are best friends forever.
2) Tea is held every week, no matter what.
3) All tea and scones must be split equally at all times."
When it became apparent that her grandmother might lose the shop she decided to get their help. This book is a coming of age book for girls and deals with romance in a realistic way. For the Tea Lovers there are recipes and anecdotes about tea. Visit www.teashopgirls.com for more information on the book and author.
