A “Warrior Cat” cake at the elementary cake contest was my first clue; there are a number of book series that resonate with girls that range from adventure, historical fiction and friendship books. As I led a “book and cookies ” club at the elementary school, I kept a list of favorite book series recommended by the girls.
