Here's an interesting new series from the folks at American Girl. This story begins with a girl named Isabel and her friend, You, heading to Pet Palooza, a pet daycare center to volunteer as pet sitters. It's a cheerful place and filled with all sorts of dogs but one dog in particular catches your eye and that dog is Pepper. The cool thing about this series is that You get to drive the action in the book by making choices. For example, if Pepper runs away would you choose to chase after Pepper or to go up to the girls who are chasing Pepper and get information from them? Just like the Choose Your Own Adventure books, You are in charge of the flow of the story but the added special ingredient is that you are making choices and then seeing the results of those choices. I could see this being a great Mother/Daughter Book Club discussion book. Throughout the book you make your choice and then go to the page number you're directed to. There are 20 different endings and some thought-provoking questions about integrity, keeping secrets and more. It's a nice format for reluctant readers and for girls who like to learn from the characters in action. 120 pages Ages 8-12
