Eleven-year-old triplets Darby, Delaney, and Dawn have just learned their big sister Lily is getting married! And they'd be thrilled if he were marrying Alex, her high school sweetheart. He loves to play Presidential Trivia with them and knows just how to make Lily smile. But no. She's marrying Burton, who the girls have nicknamed "the Armadillo" - and he doesn't seem to care much about Lily at all. He spends all his time at the library and never takes Lily on fun dates the way Alex used to. And ...more
{My Thoughts} – Triplets can sometimes mean triple the fun or triple the trouble. In the case of these eleven year-old triplets: Dawn, Darby and Delaney it is a combination of both at an extreme level. These girls understand what the true meaning of family and friendship is and they are on a goal through out this whole book to attempt to stop their older sister Lily’s wedding. They don’t believe that her groom Burton is really the right guy for them and they all three want to see her get back ...more

I'm still laughing. Revenge of the Flower girls by Jennifer Ziegler was a great book! This story was about triplets Dawn Darby and Delaney who feel there sister is marring the wrong guy. So they do everything that they can to stop the wedding and make sure there sister doesn't marry the guy who looks like an armadillo. This story is put in the perspective of all three Brewster girls.

I'll See Your Twins, And Raise You A Sibling

Eleven year old triplets Dawn, Darby and Delaney love their 22 year old sister Lily, and are distraught that she has abandoned her entirely acceptable long time boyfriend Alex in favor of a drippy guy she has just met and plans to marry. Mom isn't too keen on this soon-to-be groom either, but won't butt in. So, it looks like it's up to the girls to derail the planned nuptials.

Now, you read this summary and you know, in your heart, to a certainty, that

Eleven-year-old triplets Darby, Dawn and Delaney are not happy that their older sister Lily is marrying the bookwormish Burton instead of her high school sweetheart Alex, because Burton is "the poopiest of nincompoops" and Alex would play games with them. They try to sabotage Lily's wedding in any way they can, including trying to convince Alex to shred the marriage license and convincing him to come to the rehearsal dinner AND the wedding, telling Lily none of the venues she wanted were ...more

Dawn, Darby, and Delaney are triplets who are obsessed with the US presidents, politics, and keeping their sister, Lily, away from Burton. Lily is about to marry Burton and the triplets think this is the biggest mistake ever considering Burton is a boring guy who doesn't understand the triplets like Lily's old boyfriend, Alex.
The girls will do anything to stop the wedding, even going as far as wrecking havoc on the actual wedding day. With the help of unexpected
All right, all right! I'll confess it: I enjoyed this humorous take on love, marriage, and family a lot more than I expected that I would. While its triplets--triple threat protagonists that they are--behave in all sorts of over-the-top ways, their annoying and meddlesome qualities can be forgiven because they do it all for their much older sister Lily. When eleven-year-old Dawn, Darby, and Delaney Brewster learn of the impending marriage of Lily, they concoct a plot to stop the wedding. They ...more

Obligatory disclosure: I received an advanced copy of this book at TLA's Annual Conference. This review is unsolicited, opinions my own, etc etc etc.

This is an adorable middle-grades book. Eleven year old mischievous triplets are determined to stop their older sister's wedding to a man they dislike. They're convinced she still loves her ex-boyfriend, who they hero-worship and miss having as part of their lives. Pranks and misadventures ensue as the girls do everything they can to stall or cance
May 30, 2015 AbsentLibrarian rated it it was ok
This was a cute story that I can see working well as a family movie. Ziegler uses each of the triplets to tell the story, alternating chapters between their povs. This device works fairly well, but I still had an awfully hard time telling the difference between the three younger sisters. With their names all starting with the letter 'D' and the three always being together, it was difficult to see each of them as individuals. That aside, this was a cute romp about three young sisters trying to ...more

I found this to be a humorous contemporary story. I would list it as realistic, but it wasn't really. It was a little unbelievable at times, but in that romantic comedy sort of way. The audience knows it wouldn't really happen, but is willing to go along with it because it's more fun. This is a book that made me smile.

I enjoyed the fact that there were triplets. There aren't many books starring triplets. My only issue with that was the difficulty of k

An incredibly cute story! Triplets, Darby, Dawn and Delaney, are 11 and 11 years younger than their older sister, Lily.

Lily tells them that's she decided to marry Burton, a guy the call a nincompoop, rapscallion, scalawag who is allergic to everything and looks like an armadillo. She tells them they are going to get married in a month so she can leave with him when he goes to IL to attend law school.

Thus begins the plotting and planning to stop the wedding. The triplets believe that Burton doesn

Hott Synopsis:
Is she serious? She wants to spend her life with a man who doesn’t make her laugh?
Lily’s triplet sisters, Dawn, Darby, and Delaney, can’t imagine life with the armadillo looking walking allergy Burton. The girls want Alex back. Alex was fun. Alex did things to make Lily laugh. Alex is still in love with Lily.
So all the girls need to do is… huh. Should they find a way to postpone the wedding or just show Lily what a dork her fiance really is?
Maybe both…. oh, and possibly they could

I would recommend this book for middle grade readers. However, as an adult i found the romance and mischief very enjoyable! The story is about 3 triplets that don't want their older sister to marry her bland fiance. Through various schemes they try everything to get her back together with her ex, who they know she's still in love with. Though the plot was extremely predictable, I enjoyed every second of it and literally could not put the book down. It took about 3 hours to finish. The only thing ...more

I think the book "Revenge Of The Flower Girls" is a wonderful book. This book is about triplets who try to stop their sister from marrying Burton. The main characters are the three triplets Delaney, Dawn, Darby, and their sister Lilli. The characters to me seem really realistic because they remind me of myself. During the story they try to save their sister from marrying the wrong guy. I can relate to this because I would do the same for my sister. This shows that they care for their sister. The ...more
Triplets Dawn, Darby, and Delaney Brewster plot to sabotage their sister's wedding to the boring Burton in hopes of having her realize that she should really be wedding her old boyfriend Alex.
There is plenty of action, humor and scheming in this book to keep the reader turning the pages. Told from the triplets point of view, the reader will love the plotting and planning that happens as they plot to change the groom in this wedding. This is a light-hearted easy read similar to the Wendy Mass' Wi

Sisters always know best so the 11-year old triplets can't understand why their older sister wants to marry a guy who looks like an armadillo, is allergic to everything under the sun and when the perfect guy she used to date is still interested. So begins the plan and the girls need the help of everyone to pull this off. Austin native, Jennifer Ziegler, has created an honest look at a family that is coming to grips with a less than perfect choice and handling it in a very funny, dramatic way.

Dawn, Darby, and Delany do not want their older sister Lily to marry Burton. For one thing, he looks like an armadillo. For another, he doesn't make their sister happy like her old boyfriend Alex used to. The triplets feel that Lily is making a huge mistake, and take it upon themselves to stop the wedding. Told in their three alternating voices (which don't really seem that different), this rollicking romp through a month of wedding planning and disasters will have readers laughing ou

If you like happily ever after endings, you'll like this one. Although I realize this is fiction, it was a little too unrealistic for me. And does it bother anyone else that the cover has the triplets in pink dresses when they wore white tuxedos for the wedding? I know that they tried on pink dresses, but the cover has them standing outside where the wedding takes pink dresses. I wonder if the cover artist read the book.
Aug 10, 2015 Lisa rated it liked it
A cute and entertaining read just in time for summer. Except for their names, I found the triplets to be indistinguishable (numerous "Delaney is this, Darby is that" statements not withstanding), and it never was clear why Lily felt compelled to marry Burton in the first place, but most kid readers won't care. They will appreciate the girls' hilarious antics and the heartwarming family themes. Suggested for ~grades 3-5.
Dec 13, 2014 Travis rated it it was amazing
My older sister laughed at me when she found out I was reading this book. Can't say I blame her- I somehow doubt twenty-something males are the target audience here. But I regret nothing. This book is absolutely charming. Dawn, Darby, and Delaney's account of their older sister's wedding is genuinely engaging and hilarious, as well as surprisingly insightful. My main complaint is that it was too short. Now my older sister wants to read it too. Can't say I blame her.

Triples Dawn, Delaney, and Darby adore their older sister Lily and are shocked when Lily announces her engagement to Burton instead of her perfect ex-boyfriend Alex. The very bright and extremely meddlesome little sisters are determined to get Lily and Alex together before the wedding so they begin Operation Postpone. A light breezy middle grade novel which reads like a cute made-for-tv movie and will be appreciated by readers who enjoy clever family comedies.

Delany, Darby, and Dawn have got to find a way to stop Lily's (Old Sister.) wedding! Why? Lily just broke up with the best groom ever to now planning a more small wedding with the worst groom ever, Burton. Allergic to almost everything, a lot can stop Lily's main plans with Burton's allergies. But could her true love be sitting right there.

The book I read was revenge of the flower girls. I really enjoyed this book because it was about how a girl named lily decided to marry someone that her sisters didn't like at all. I rated this book five stars because it was entertaining. You should read this book because it is the best book I ever read.

Read this book after receiving it from Scholastic is a Goodreads giveaway. Having read it through the eyes of the middle school reader I found it a fun delightful read. The triplets were charming, funny and full of life. I will donate to our neighborhood's new Little Library as a book for young readers.
