Eager for a little insider information about the 7th Mother-Daughter Book Club installment?

I just dished to Michael Levin and his delightful daughter Chynna in an interview for Huffington Post — and they’ve got the scoop for you here.Β  Enjoy!

  1. WOW the article is great!! I’m so so SO excited about both “Absolutely Truly” and MDBC #7! Heather, I loved your a answer about how you write for the girl that you were. You’re right, I love digging into big books! Thanks for this little treat, it was greatly appreciated ❀️

        • The way it works is that someone in Hollywood — an actor, director, producer, etc. — has to discover a book and think, “Wow, this would make a great movie!” Β Then they take it from there. Β Let’s keep our fingers crossed, OK? Β I think it would be great fun! πŸ™‚

  2. Cant wait for mdbc #7! So, its coming out early 2016? Can’t wait! I just wanted to share with you that, There is a “fan fiction” website and there are over 90 stories about your girls! I have written some and enjoyed doing so! everyone on that website cant wait for the 7th and just so you know they always give the credit to you! πŸ˜‰
    Even though I am a really really long ways from motherhood, I want my kids, or nieces, or grandchildren to read your books! and make it into a tradition! πŸ˜€

      • that’s really sweet daisy, i’m thinking in a similar fashion although I will make my younger sisters read them and, if I have to force her, I will make my older sister read it too, she’s 14 and more into the dystopians now, its really annoying cause she disses me for reading what I read, I try not to let it bother me though

    • Haha, you never know! (And Ems, if this is you, could you please contact me from your home email, not school one? For some reason my reply isn’t going through.)

  3. Hi Ms. Frederick! I would really appreciate if if you would email me, I’ve tried to email you but I guess I had the wrong address :(. Will the book also have their junior year? And if you do an epolouge, would you do a chapter in each girl’s point of view? I believe I speak for all of us fans when I say we must know who they married and who their kids are! Thanks so much for writing a book 7!!! I can’t wait til 2016. Happy Halloween. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Katherine — I did just reply to your email, but will answer here as well — the book will not have their junior year, it takes place between high school graduation and the time they head off to college. A whole summer with the MDBC! Don’t know about an epilogue, we’ll have to wait and see… πŸ˜‰

  4. I was so thrilled to read this update! I can hardly wait for early 2016, even though it’s just late 2014! Your writing really inspires me, and I love the MDBC! By ‘camp’ between senior year of high school and first year of college, do you mean summer cam, or just the time they spend over the summer?

  5. Thanks so much for this great edition!!!! I am thrilled about spending time with your Darling mdbc girz!!!!! You are such a great author and I love your books nearly as much as the one behind all the writing πŸ˜€


  6. Mrs. Frederick!
    I am so excited about this!!!!!! I got my friend into the series and I am re-reading the other 6 so i have all my information done!
    Have you thought about any new titles/books they will be reading?
    Thanks so much!
    Your Fan,

    • They will be reading “Understood Betsy” by Dorothy Canfield Fisher in this 7th (and truly final) book. πŸ™‚

  7. I hope that there’s a movie too!!! I can’t wait for the book! Is there anyway to get the book early?? What is the title of MDBC #7

    • It doesn’t have a title yet, Lucy — I’m still pondering. And writing. πŸ˜‰ No plans for a movie, but wouldn’t that be fun? It’s not up to me, though, it’s up to Hollywood. As for getting the book early, nope, but I will be putting sneak previews up eventually, once it’s finished and edited. Stay tuned!

  8. I am so looking forward to this final book! I am eager to finally hear more from my literary best friends. I want to thank you, Heather, for this wonderful book series. Even though it’s a long ways away, I am particularly thrilled about the publishing date–I will be between senior year of high school and freshman year of college when it comes out in 2016, so it will really feel just right.
    Thanks again for your wonderful writing!

  9. I am sooooo excited for this next book!!!! I know I was one of those fans after the sixth book who cried and cried and cried, mentally begging you to make another book…maybe we will have to do that again!!

  10. I am so excited, thanks so much for telling me! Did you know I go every year to Maine for the sumer? We have a house by a lake and it’s perfect for a writer. It’ll be so cool to read about Maine! Thanks so much!!!

  11. Are you gonna give us any more updates about MDBC 7 ? There so good and interesting, i’m so excited! Are they going to be at the summer camp all summer?

  12. I can’t wait to read the book at least 100 times (not even joking)! Also Heather, I was wondering if your going to be around in the NJ, Ny, Ct places this end of October and Novemebr?

    • Check my “Events & Appearances” page — no plans for NJ, NY or Ct, but Massachusetts — Concord, in fact! πŸ™‚

  13. Hi. Are you planning to come to The Hudson Valley in NY any time soon to talk about your books? Just wondering…

  14. I can’t wait! I LOVE books about summer camp. PLEASE tell me that the guys will be there too! My favorite part about the most recent MDBC books has been the Jess/Darcy bits. Thanks for letting us know what is going on with MDBC #7!

  15. So glad to hear how the girls finish high school! Excited also as Understood Betsy is such an excellent story. I agree with the hopes for an epilogue!

    Thanks for such a great series!

  16. YAY! I can’t believe the girls who started out in sixth grade are almost in COLLEGE! Will Tristan be mentioned at least once?
    And will the book be published in the summer of 2015 or early 2016?
    I love u and MDBC!

    • Why thank you, Marie! And yes, of COURSE Tristan will be mentioned. πŸ™‚ Not sure on publication date yet, stay tuned…

      • Okay good!!!! Cassidy+Tristan and Jess+Darcy are my favorite!!!!!!! I was SOOOO glad when Cassidy chose Tristan instead of Zach. πŸ˜› I enjoy his love for her more then I do zach’s.

          • I cant ever stop thinking about MDBC!! I think Cassidy could end up with either Zach or Tristan because she’s only seen Tristan twice since he lived in Concord, and she always is around Zach in Concord.

  17. I absolutely cannot wait until 2016, but it seems like ages from now. I might even be driving by then. πŸ™‚ :0

  18. Very very excited!!!!!!!
    Also, I just realized that Stewart, Darcy and Tristan will be 20 years old, right??!!
    Will Cassidy and Tristan and Jess and Darcy still be together?
    I love the MDBC and you, and I love to write. So you are actually my biggest inspiration, like Jane Austen is to Mrs. Hawthorne and Emma!!

  19. Yes!!!!I only wish that MDBC #7 would come put sooner, but I understand that its a big process. Good job, Heather!! Your books have made me love reading and writing even MORE. Thank you, Heather!!!

  20. I love alllllllllllllllllllll the mdbc books! I am 7 grade, and been reading them since 4 again and again! I can’t wait for the new 1! my friends and I are always talking about it.

  21. Ahhhhh!!!!!! You have no idea how excited I am about the 7th book!!! I can’t wait until 2016! I am practically screaming! These books have inspired me so much and the characters are so real to me! I feel like I am actually in their book club. I laugh when they laugh, I am upset when they are. Thank you SO much for writing a 7th MDBC book! You couldn’t just leave us hanging…

  22. Btw are you planning to come to Atlanta, GA (or anywhere around there) anytime soon? Because I would LOVE to meet you and here you talk!

  23. Hi! Will any of the girls get braces or invisalign or something for their teeth? I have had both and feel like the only one!

    • Ha! You are definitely not the only one, Lia. Becca got them in one of the early books in the series (back when she was still mean Becca). Maybe I’ll pop them on someone else in this new book, so you have some company. πŸ™‚

  24. Heather, have you thought of who you would like on the MDBC #7 cover? It would be cool if you have all five on it! Like the one with the books on their head, and then the other four with their heads sticking out from the edges, so you’d only see their eyes. I’m so excited for the new book!!! πŸ™‚

    • That would be fun. I don’t know what the plan will be yet, Zoie. I guess we all have to stay tuned and see what the whizzes in the Simon & Schuster art department come up with!

  25. Mrs. Fredricks – Ahhhhh!!! I’m so excited for the MDBC #7! I started reading them when I was in 5th grade, and now I am in 7th. I love all of the characters, they seem like real people to me. A movie would be so cool! Also, I was wondering if any parts of the book would be in N.H? I learned that you grew up in Peterborough- thats very close to where I live! It would be wicked cool if it was set near my (very) small town! My friends and I are so excited!
    From, Your biggest fan!

    • Haha, actually, the ENTIRE book is set in NH … at a fictitious summer camp. Wicked cool indeed! πŸ™‚

  26. YAY!!!!!!!
    I am emotionally and mentally attached to the MDBC girls (and their moms)! I hope you do an epilogue.
    I talk to my friends a lot about this series, and all of them (my friends) seem to “dislike” Stewart. Did you intend for this to happen? I love Emma and Stewart, and I wouldn’t dessert the horrible hockey player and his girl. And don’t worry, I have never factorized any of the girls, they are all equal to me!!!

    XO AnnaD

    • I’m glad you love all the girls — and we love Stewart, too, even though he’s going through some growing pains. πŸ™‚

  27. Hi Mrs. Frederick! I am in LOVE with MDBC!!!!!! They are the best books I’ve ever read!!! I can’t wait for the seventh book! I’m reading Pies & Prejudice right now, I don’t want to give anything away to others… but it’s really good! I love all the characters too πŸ™‚

  28. I love all of the book covers! They’re so creative. All of the girls are so pretty! They help me imagine what they look like in the story πŸ˜€ Have you ever met the girls on the covers?

  29. Hi Heather!
    I found your books 5 years ago when looking for something to read. Ever since then, I have read and reread your books. Recently, one of my friends began the series and wondered where a certain part was. I recited the page number to her and she was in awe! It was hilarious. I LOVE your books so much!
    When the seventh book comes out, I will be in my junior year going into my senior year and so it is similar timing to the MDBC girls! Will there be a movie that will come out? Also, I wanted to know if you will be writing an epilogue to show who marries whom and what their future looks like! I am so excited for the book to come out that I don’t think I will last a whole year! Also, I made a pact that I will make my future children and grandchildren (though I am way far from motherhood) to read your novels! They are truly amazing!Thank you so much!

    • Akshaya, you are SO kind to write such warm words about my books! It means the world! LOL about knowing the page number — wow, that’s a true FAN!!! Not sure about an epilogue, but you will definitely have a sense of where the girls are going in the future. As for a movie, that’s not up to me. Fingers crossed somebody in Hollywood likes the books, too… πŸ˜‰ And I love it that you’re thinking ahead to children and grandchildren! <3

  30. Oh my gosh!!! I am so excited for this!!! I cannot wait!!! This seriously made my day πŸ™‚ I have not been able to go on your blog for a while, but now I am ecstatic that I did! BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!

  31. I want to thank you for writing a book series so amazing. When I read the last of the 6th book I cried because I could not believe it was over. In the 7th book will the boys be coming to camp and will the parents be coming? Is Tristean and Simon come to camp? When do you think the book will come out? Once again thank you for writing the fabulous MDBK?

    • I cried too, Haley! Which probably helped nudge me into writing a 7th one… More information, including a sneak peek, title, and publication date, coming this spring. Stay tuned!

  32. I’m so excited!!! I discovered the MDBC when I got the first 3 for Christmas! I got hooked after the first, so I used all of my gift cards to buy the rest of the series!
    Also, I live right near Concord and it was fun to recognize many of the places mentioned!

    Do you know who’s going to be on the cover yet?

    • Ooo, lucky you, to live near Concord! πŸ™‚ So happy to hear that you’re enjoying the series, Susanna. I do not know yet who will be on the cover. More information coming later this spring, along with a sneak peek!

  33. I can’t wait til 2016!!! I absolutely love your books Heather! When this spring? I cant wait for more info! Your books have inspired me to want to become a wrier! The boys should come to the camp too. I cant wait! Keep us posted on all the sneak peek info for the 7th MDBC book! You and all your books rock! Thanks so much for writing such good stories and advice in your books!

  34. when in 2016 does the book come out? i’ve read the series twice now, but i just can’t get over them. It makes me wish they could all come to life.

    • We don’t have a firm publication date yet. Stay tuned — I’ll let everybody know as soon as I know. AND we’ll be having a sneak preview pretty soon…

  35. p.s. in the second book, the cover is cassidy right? well, if it is, then i think they made her hair way too neat?hehehe

    • Nope, only that it’s UP to Hollywood if there’s a movie someday. I can’t make it happen!

  36. So exited about MDBC #7 i’ve read all the books,Can’t wait to read bout Cassidy and emma,Megan,Becca and Jess and all the others (maybe not Mrs.Chadwick) lol

  37. I love the MDBC series, and I am rerererereading it! πŸ˜‰ But I can’t wait for the 7th book to come out! When is it coming out?

    -Jasmine πŸ˜€

  38. So excited! Understood Betsy is one of my favorite books ever (not past the MDBC of course)! Was just having wishful thinking while surfing the web when I found out about the seventh book!

  39. So excited! I have grown up with understood Betsy and love it almost as much as the MDBC! Who was it in the MDBC to nominate it for their reading?

  40. i read a few books in this series . i started reading last month . i still have 4 more books to read including the 7th book. i love the series. its so sad it is ending. i wish u could make books till they go into college and more . i wish they would still do the book club in videochat or something when they r in college

  41. yayyyyyyy!!!!!I have read and fallen in love with the 6 mdbc books and absolutely truly…I’m so excited for the 7th book!!!!!!!!!!

  42. I love the MDBC series and I’m hooked to it! I’ve been wondering if you have the release date, and I have heard May 2nd I was just wondering!?

  43. I’m just sayin’, I would love to play Megan Wong if a movie comes out! πŸ˜‰ But I”M SO EXCITED FOR ANOTHER BOOK AHH! I love this series, especially since I can connect so well with the girls!

  44. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEW BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HEATHER VOGEL FREDERICK I LOVE YOUR BOOKS SO MUCH I COULD MARRY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 Love you :P!
    See you soon Emma, Jess, Cassidy, Megan and Becca!

  45. hey Mrs. Fredrick

    i send you an Email, but you never replied. so maybe it was a wrong email. I was wondering if you could write a series similar the mdbc from the Cassidy’s,Becca’s, Emma’s, Jess’s, and Megan’s daughters point of view. it would be so cool. if you did. And if you don’t know what to start of with, just email me.

    • Hi Riya — I am WOEFULLY behind on email — we’re in the middle of a very long drawn-out cross country move, and I promise I’ll get caught up again soon! Meanwhile, thank you for the suggestion. I don’t think that’s something I want to do at this point, though. I am busy with Pumpkin Falls mysteries, and some more historical fiction… but it’s a fun idea! πŸ˜‰

  46. Dear Heather,
    YAY!!! I am so excited for another book! During this past summer, I read every book word for word about 6 times!! I was so sad when the books finished, but felt that it would be too late to email you about a new book. But i can’t believe you wrote another one! I am so excited!!! thank you so much. <3

  47. I read it, it was a great book. Will there be a MDBC 8? I think there should be with them as PARENTS. YESSSSS! PLZ?!

    • So happy that you liked it, Madi. Alas, no MDBC #8, but a few of the MDBC characters just might wander into Pumpkin Falls, and the Truly books now and then…

  48. I love your books sooooo much, and I can’t stop reading them! I am really hoping a movie will come out, because that would be awesome!!!!! Keep writing!!!! I really love the pranks that Cassidy plays They are HILARIOUS!!!!!!!! Are you going to write a book 8? It would be awesome if you did. I just found out there is a book 7 and am hoping to get ahold of a copy- can’t find it in a library

    • I’m so happy you love my books! There won’t be a book 8, but I think you’ll enjoy book 7. Ask your library to order it for you — they can do that! πŸ™‚
