I work at home as a freelance writer. I enjoy reading, writing, and television.

Carter House Girls

~ Carter House Girls by Melody Carlson is a great series for teenage and young adult females. I read them all several years ago and I loved them. The series got its start in 2008 and it only took until 2010 for Carlson to finish all eight! ~

  ......Follow DJ, Taylor, Eliza, Rihannon, Casey, and Kriti through their time at the Carter House.  Can they follow Mrs. Carter's strict rules?  Will they be able to get along?  Read all 8 books and find out!......

Desiree's (a.k.a. DJ) grandmother, Katherine Carter, turns her house into a boarding house for young girls. She hopes she can help them become proper young ladies and possibly, models.

Can they cooperate and make Mrs. Carter's dreams come true?
