The Middle

Being in the middle is like being invisible.

Especially when you're the middle sister in a family with three girls.

Think about it. The middle of a story is not the beginning or the end. The middle of a train is not the caboose or the engine.

The middle of a play is intermission. The middle of Monkey in the Middle is a monkey. The middle of Neapolitan ice cream is . . . vanilla.

"I'm vanilla!" I shouted one day to anybody who would listen. Plain old boring vanilla.
Nobody listened.Alex, my older sister, ignored me. She just kept writing stuff in the margins of her play script (what else is new!) and muttering the lines under her breath.

Easy for her. She's strawberry.

I was sick of it, so I told my family how I hate being the middle. Middle, middle, middle.

"Hey! The middle of 'Farmer in the Dell' is the cheese!" Joey, my younger sister, reminded me.

"The cheese stands alone," I reminded her back. Alex looked up. "There's a book about that, you
know. I Am the Cheese."

Yeah. My autobiography, I thought. "Wait. You think you're cheese or something?" Joey asked.

I ignored her. They just don't get it. I mean, the middle of a year is, what, Flag Day? The middle of a life is a midlife crisis!

I told my dad I was having a midlife crisis.

"You're going to give me a midlife crisis if you don't get over this," Dad said. I asked him to name one middle that is a good thing. Dad had to think. He thought and thought and didn't say anything. Then finally he told me, "The middle of an apple is the core."

"Um-hmm. The yucky part people throw away," I said.

"How about the middle of the night? That's an interesting time, when people see things differently." I pointed out that most people sleep through the middle of the night.

Then he shouted like he had a super-brainy Einstein idea. "The middle of an Oreo cookie is the
sweet, creamy, best part. You can't argue with that." He was right. I couldn't argue. If I had to be a middle, that's the best middle to be.

"See? You're the peanut butter in the sandwich," said Dad. "You're the creamy center of the cookie that holds it all together. You're the glue."

I'm the glue?

Maybe Dad's right. After all, I'm the one who came up with the (brilliant!) idea for the Sisters
Club, back when I was Joey's age. Alex gets to be the Boss Queen, of course, so she runs the meetings. Joey (a.k.a. Madam Secretary/Treasurer) takes the notes and collects dues (if we had any money). I keep the peace. I am the glue!

The Sisters Club Charter by Joey Reel

CLUBHOUSE: Alex's room

MEMBERS: Reel sisters only

UNIFORM: Pj's are good. Plaid is bad. Except when it's pj's.

MASCOT: Alex's sock monkey, named Sock Monkey (I wish it was Hedgie, my hedgehog.)

LOGO: Three sock monkeys arm in arm

ALTERNATE LOGO: Troll doll with the "no" sign over it

Hook pinkies together while saying, "Sisters, Blisters, and Tongue Twisters."

SECRET KNOCK: I don't know how to write it!
I just know how to do it. Sounds like:
Da-da-da, da-dee-dee-doh.

PASSWORD: Shakespeare (Shh! Don't tell!)

ACTIVITIES: Tell secrets and scary stories, eat popcorn and ice cream, stay up late, have sleepovers in Alex's room (I mean the clubhouse!).

DUES: Only if we need popcorn or ice cream and
we're out of them.

RULES: No throwing pillows or other objects, except in an official pillow fight.
No putting crumbs in Alex's bed on purpose.
No using Alex's brush to brush your hair .
No taking stuff from Alex's room (especially anything with glitter).


Meet the Sisters Club: twelve-year-old Alex, aspiring actress and born drama queen; eight-year-old Joey, homework lover and pioneer wannabe; and smack in the middle, ten-year-old Stevie, the glue that holds them together — through dinner disasters, disputes over stolen lucky sweaters, and Alex’s going gaga over her leading man. Playfully weaving Stevie’s narration with Alex’s scripts, Joey’s notebook entries, and hilarious elements such as "How to Swear in Shakespeare" and "Dear Sock Monkey" letters, this hugely engaging novel showcases Megan McDonald’s ear for dialogue, comic timing, and insight into the ever-changing dynamics of sisterhood.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very enjoyable book 12. November 2004
Von Zoe - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is really good. It is about a trio of sisters who have their own club. There's the oldest sister, Alex, who is dramatic and lovestruck. She is into fashion and glitter and just about everything that older girls crave. The middle sister, Stevie, is the glue of the family and is very simple. The youngest sister, Joey, is cute and playful and loves pioneers. This was a funny page turner. I found myself loving Joey and her hobbies, but all girls are fairly hilarious is their own way. If you're a girl age 7-13, you will love this interesting book about fondue, marshmallows in between toes, and sock monkeys as you share the giggles of Alex, Stevie, and Joey.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I L-O-V-E IT!!!!! 26. April 2005
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If I could rate this item more than 5 stars, I'd jump at the chance! This book is so enjoyable, and I couldn't stop laughing! It's perfect for girls in the age range from 7-12. The Reel family's into acting, which I'm also a big fan of. When I bought this at the bookstore, I zipped right through it - and turned around and started right over! I liked how it switched from each of the sisters' points of view, too. I hope Megan McDonald writes up THE SISTERS CLUB #2. If so, I'll be first in line to read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A sisterly good book 1. Dezember 2003
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The best book I have read is The Sister Club, by Megan McDonald. The main characters in this story are Joey, Stevie and Alex Reel. They live right next door to a theater and their family is really into acting. Their mother is even on a cooking show called Fondue Sue. These 3 sisters are pretty close in age, Joey being 8, Stevie being 10 and Alex being 12. They all have boy names because their mom was sure they would all be boys.
The story takes place in Acton, Oregon. I think that is funny that they choose to live there, since the family acts and the city's name sound like act.
The story is like a big diary. Stories about boys, Jell-o
(Joey's favorite food) and pioneers. I love all the wacky things they do, like putting marshmallows between their toes. All the girls have input in the story, so that makes it even better!
The theme of the story is the family's different perspective of things that happen. It teaches you that sisters may not always get along, but they still love each other.
I really like this story because of how real the author makes it seem. It makes you feel like you are there, reading over their shoulder while they're writing it.

Sisters Club was the funniest book I have ever read. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes drama, acting, and likes to hear about plays. The book is about three sisters who have a club and like acting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great read and awesome trilogy. 7. Februar 2012
Von Steven R. McEvoy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Reading this book was like going back to my own childhood. I grew up in a home of three boys, and reading this book about three sisters made me realize that I never knew how much boys and girls were alike. Megan McDonald, who grew up the youngest of 5 sisters, writes about the friendship, love, hate and trials of family life among siblings. Our cast of characters is:
Three Sisters:
Alex Reel (the oldest)
Stevie Reel (middle the glue)
Joey Reel (the youngest)
Mom (Susan Reel Actress)
Dad (Richard Reel famous actor who played King Lear)
Great Great Grandmother, founder of the town Hepzibiah McNutty Reel
Other Cast Members:
Sock Monkey
Scott Howell (the first boy to come over for dinner)
And more.

The three sisters have the Sisters club. They have sleep overs and meetings in Alex's room. They put on plays. This is a well-written book, in a mix of traditional text and what look like journal entries with comments from the other sisters. The illustrations really add to the book. It is a really fun read and another great book for readers of all ages by Megan McDonald.
