review á E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ô Elizabeth Lenhard

Chicks with Sticks It's a Purl Thing Book 1Not just for crafty types through it does include several knitting patterns and projects It s for anyone who s ever found friends in the most unlikely place or wanted to Sometimes you just need some string and sticks with some full fat hot chocolate on the side to get you there. I thought that this book was a good way of saying that different girls with different personalities can have a strong bond Scottie Amanda Tay and Bella were all different high schoolers who were all VERY different Scottie had some family problems Amanda had a learning disability Tay was a spiky tomboy and Bella was interesting This unpredicted relationship was started by a knitting shop called KnitWit KnitWit brought these very different girls together by knitting This book was about the girls' journey to a deeper even better relationship This book is definitely one of my favorites

Ves hanging at their local yarn store a magical place called KnitWit bound together by a yen for yarn and a hunger for friendship Their stitches and their relationships become so intertwined that it s hard to remember which came first the girls or the purls Chicks With Sticks is. Eh It was all right I guess I was expecting so much from the hype I've heard about it I found it rather shallow and not nearly as interesting and engrossing as it could be Utterly forgettableETA You know what's really tacky When authors or their supporters comment on negative reviews on a review site This was a two starred review Now it's a one star
