The Summer Gang

C.H.I.X. Book 1

After looking after Charlie’s grandma’s chickens, best friends Charlie, Hannah, Izzie and Xa (Alexandra) form a secret club formed by the first letters of their names. They are the C.H.I.X. They wear a feather around their necks, look for adventure and swear an oath to never eat poultry! Despite attracting the unwanted attention of a local boy-gang, known to the girls as the Foxes (Pygmies), ultimately they enjoy an easy-going boy-girl rivalry, eventually becoming good friends while always dealing with their own on-off friendships and family dramas. The original series of five books in Germany has sold more than a million copies where it has captured a generation of readers who have grown up with the series.
