Revenge of the Flower Girls by Jennifer Ziegler. 229 p. Scholastic Inc., May, 2014. 9780545561419.

Publisher synopsis: In this middle-grade Bridesmaids, hilarity ensues as triplets have to stop a wedding!
One bride. Two boys. Three flower girls who won't forever hold their peace. What could go wrong with this wedding? Everything!
The Brewster triplets, Dawn, Darby, and Delaney, would usually spend their summer eating ice cream, playing with their dog, and reading about the US Presidents. But this year they're stuck planning their big sister Lily's wedding. Lily used to date Alex, who was fun and nice and played trivia games with the triplets, and no one's quite sure why they broke up. Burton, Lily's groom-to-be, is not nice or fun, and he looks like an armadillo.
The triplets can't stand to see Lily marry someone who's completely wrong for her, so it's up to them to stop the wedding before anyone says "I do!" The flower girls will stop at nothing to delay Lily's big day, but will sprinklers, a photo slideshow, a muddy dog, and some unexpected allies be enough to prevent their big sister - and the whole Brewster family - from living unhappily ever after?

First line: It was Delaney's idea that we ruin Lily's wedding.

Page 56: I chose a line from page 57 because I just loved it. "Forever's has their pies on display, and I always order the one that is least popular because I feel sorry for it."

Happy reading!


  1. This sounds like a cute book. I'd be curious how the triplets end up ruining the wedding or if they manage it at all!

  2. Haha, that thing with the pies sounds like something I would do!

  3. "Forever's has their pies on display, and I always order the one that is least popular because I feel sorry for it."

    Interestingly, I sometimes tend to do the same thing! Like instead of buying my little girls an expensive American Girl doll, I went ahead and bought the exclusive Walmart version, they love them :) Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Oh, how could she fall for anyone who looked like an "armadillo?" She needs help picking a guy who can press her "yum buttons" (Nora Roberts).

  5. Pitiful pie. Love it! :-)

    Happy weekend!

  6. Ooooh, that's so sweet. She feels sorry for the pie. That's original. Never heard it put that way.
