Carter House Girls Synopsis: Mixed Bags is the first novel in Melody Carlson’s Carter House Girls YA series. Sixties fashion star Katherine Carter has opened a boarding home for teenage girls. Carter’s granddaughter, DJ, was forced to move in when her mother passed away. She isn’t looking forward to meeting the girls at this new place, as she doesn’t think they’ll mix well. DJ would rather wear a sports jersey than anything fashionable. Slowly, the girls all get to know eachother in this new living arrangement. There are some divas here and there, but largely everyone gets along and they all start dating, fighting, laughing, shopping and sharing secrets. DJ may not be the perfect girl that her grandmother is looking for, but with all of her new “sisters,” things will never be the same again!
