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 Â“I do!Â” 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?
Raves & reviews:
"Ziegler makes sisterhood seem almost magical. The plot, which is full of amusing hijinks and physical comedy, has a wingding climax, Lily;s bored bridesmaids add spice, and Burton's overbearing mother is a horrid hoot." —Kirkus
"...there's plenty of warmth and humor with a happy ending that sees the right people paired up..." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"In Revenge of the Flower Girls... Ziegler develops and juggles not one but three main characters, who take turns narrating the action." —Kirkus Reviews
"...Ziegler makes each girl distinct-Delaney is the energetic one, Darby's shy, and Dawn, the eldest likes to take charge. The parents' divorce is presented in a matter-of-fact manner that makes it clear they are all still a family. Details like the triplets' obsession with presidential trivia, as well as the mischievous family dog Quincy, will have readers wishing the Brewsters lived on their block." —Publisher's Weekly
"...Well-paced plot with realistic dialogue. There is genuine humor in the hijinks the girls devise, and the sisters do exhibit the true bond unique to multiples. All in all, this is an innocent and fun sibling adventure." —School Library Journal
