Elizabeth Lenhard makes knitting cool for teens in It's a Purl Thing, the first book in the Chicks with Sticks series.

The knitting bug has spread from Scottie Shearer to popular Amanda, free-sprited Bella, and Tay, the anti-girl. The four become an unlikely group of friends with an even more unlikely hobby. But will the pressures of conformity at Stark High keep them from remaining pals?

Young listeners will want to take up their own sticks as they listen along to the lively narration of Liz Morton. Download and start listening now!

    " I am a crocheter, not a knitter. But after I read this book I wanted to go out and learn to knit. Four girls from very different backgrounds come together with the common bond of knitting. They help each other come to understand what is going on in their lives. "

    " I totally LOVE Scottie Bella Tay and Amanda! You'd never have thought they'd be brought together to become bffs and defy the status quo other wise known as stereotype school expectations! I love everything about this book! "

    " When I ordered it I thought it was an instructional book. Sad right? I thought it was ok. I ordered the second book because I like to complete series. "

    " Adorable. Maybe a little too sugary, but the love of knitting was all over it and it reminded me of how good it is to be a knitter. "

    " Awesome book about friendships and knitting. You don't have to be a knitter to read this, but the friendship and teen angst just gives more personality to the story. Very mild language though. "

    " Four teen girls come together over knitting. Not sure if the teen part rings as true as the complete obsession with with the whole yarn thing. "

    " I love knitting, and I love YA novels, but I do not love this book. Fifty pages in, I still couldn't bring myself to care about the characters. "

    " I loved this book of friendship and knitting. If you have ever been in a knitting group you know how diverse folks of all ages find common ground over the needles. "

    " I thought it would be wierd since it is about girls who knit, but was actually cool. Especially when Stevie FINALLY tells her parents off. "

    " This book introduced me to knitting which I had always thought was a really boring thing to do. It reminded me of sisterhood of the traveling pants- without the pants. "

    " Good teen read about girls with different personalities finding their own peace with yarn and sticks! "
