A fun, frothy novel about friendship and knitting.
Scottie feels like her whole world is turning upside down. Then she discovers knitting, and it’s as if she’s been thrown a cashmerino lifeline. Soon Scottie and her best friend Amanda – along with new friends Bella and Tay – find themselves 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 not 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.

Grade 7–10—Scottie, Tay, Amanda, and Bella are reunited in this second installment in the series. Scottie, wearing her frumpy lilac sweatpants, runs into a gorgeous hunk in her apartment building. She and Beck begin dating, and the world of the chicks is never the same. As Scottie watches Tay and Amanda struggle with their relationships, she wonders how to balance her friends and Beck-and how much a part of his life she really is. (Bella has sworn off men, for the time being.) As they knit their way through their problems, the teens deal with loyalty to friends when a new boy enters the picture. While each of the four girls is a "type," the deftly explored issues mirror what adolescents have been experiencing for decades. This book deals more with the emotional side of relationships than with the physical, and, although the ending is convenient, the feelings are real. For "crafty" readers or those who enjoy serial teen drama, this is a good choice.—Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI
