Oh Willa, you always make me smile. No matter what her adventures or schemes, Willa is always up to something and it’s a trip you want to take with her. This was another read for the 48 Hour Book Challenge, and although it was a short light read, it was lots of fun!

With Forget Me Not as the fourth book in this series, Willa is growing up and author Colleen Murtagh Paratore takes us through Willa’s maturity with a graceful ease. Willa is still relatable to tween readers, but I think the series c

By Coleen Murtagh Paratore

This book is about a girl named Willa that feels like she is losing everything that is close to her. For example her best friend Tina, is beginning to replace Willa with Willa's "rival" Ruby. But despite that Willa is a wrtiter and a reader and always gains confidence in herself when she goes to beach everyday to watch the sunrise and writes in her journal to try and capture its beauty. She gains confidence in herself when she h
I really disliked this book. I thought that the more books I read from the Wedding Planner's Daughter series, the better it was becoming, but this book for me was a let down, slightly. I don't think I'll be continuing to read the series.

In the fourth instalment of Willa's life, Willa is going through a dramatic and awkward time in her life. Willa's best friend, Tina, seems to be leaving her for Ruby, Tina's old friend. Willa's new friend, Mariel, seems to be attached to Willa's boyfriend, makin

Escape to the easy, breezy, light-hearted, carefree summertime in Cape Cod with 15-year-old Willa Havisham - wedding planner, book nerd, girlfriend, environmentalist, and awesomist. Every time I picked up this book, I just got lost in its pages. It was like a getaway in and of itself. I felt like I was in-between dreamland and reality when I read this book. It's hard for me to explain - you kinda have to just experience it for yourself. The simplicity of it is really refreshing after reading suc ...more

This book was really cute. I love The Wedding Planner's Daughter books. The things I liked about this book was that it was so realistic. The events could actually happen to someone. Willa the main and my favorite character is happy with life with her awesome boyfriend JFK and her friends. But there are some difficulties in her life.

Wow! I think the 'Will Havisham' series gets better as it goes along. This one had Willa doing some soul-searching about friendships, about her role in paying 'community rent' (the concept that we owe it to our communities to give back), about her relationships with her family, etc. I really like how she's not afraid to admit hard things about herself: how she learns and grows throughout the book.
The cliff-hanger ending was a bit of a surprise, though! Can't wait to see what happens next!
I give this 5 stars exact! It's so beautiful, and I love, love, LOVE all of Coleen's books <3
She's an extraordinary writer, with a great since of words! And I always smile.

The book is about summer time in Cape Cod and that's where I'd be if it wasn't almost Winter- but exactly it's about friendship and excitement, that's exactly what I like in a book.

Truly remarkable in every way, shape, or form.

Willa Havisham's summers are never uneventful and this one is no different. She plans a wedding on her own. Willa and her boyfriend Joey must say goodbye for a whole month (drat baseball camp!). And her best friend Tina is spending more and more time with Ruby, Willa's number one frenemy.

What I thought: Watching Willa grow up is a pleasure. I've liked Willa ever since I first met her in The Wedding Planner's Daughter. Willa continues to love reading and is great at thinking on her feet. She may

I gave this book 5 stars, because it was just an over all good book. It was just a book that I could sit down and en-joy reading, I probably wouldn’t recommend this book to boys but for girls it a total yes. The author did a really good job on explain how hard it can be to be a teenage girl, because of what drama and love problems were always going through. Willa was my favorite part, even though she was nothing like me she like to read and do poetry and have a diary, while I would rather be pla ...more

This is the first book I read in the series and even though it is #4 you don't feel lost. This is a quick high school/jr. high read but you will enjoy it as an adult too.
So I just got on Thriftbooks and bought the rest of the series. :-)
Willa gets her first wedding planning gig for her Aunt Ruthie.

I thought this book was very interesting. In the long run the theme was about saving the planet and that if things are meant to happen the will. Another theme of this book is that everything happens for i reason. I think everybody should have a skinny punch pix list. Reading every day make you wiser like Willa.

The Wedding Planner's Daughter is a Teen book by Coleen Murtagh Paratore, published by Scholastic Inc. in 2005.

Twelve year old Willa Havisham is a classics reader, a cherry-cordial eater, and a quite possibly the world's worst wisher.

However, when she and her glamorous single mother, Stella, move to Bramble, Cape Cod, Willa's wishes are beginning to come true. She makes her first ever best friend Tina, bonds with her hip, candy making Nana, and, best of all, helps steely Stella fall in love with
It's summer on Cape Cod, where Willa Havisham and Joey "JFK" Kennelly are enjoying their status as most compatible couple. There's plenty of romance, friendship, and summertime fun in sight. Willa's mother, Stella, the famous wedding planer, even let's Willa plan a wedding all by herself! But when baseball and a beautiful girl start to pull JFK away, best friend Tina begins to hang out with the intolerable Ruby Sivler, and the bride to be turns into a bridezilla, Willa knows she must fix things, ...more

Review by B.V.: "What I like about this book is how the author made the main character Willa a friendly, understanding and outgoing person."

The summer is beautiful, don't you think. For Willa, her summer is beautiful and enjoyed. The main location is in the beach, also from that, embarked many lovely story. Willa is a smart girl, she always can think some good idea to solve the problem, even help Ruthie and Spruce to plan their wedding. Sometime, it makes me laughing, like the end of the story, Willa's boyfriend, Joseph (JFK). He saw a boy who with a dog came with Willa, he is jealous of him, and the boy said to him :"Don't worry.. ...more
Such a cute series. This is fun, full of quotes, and exactly what you expect from Willa. Hate that it's a cliffhanger!

If I could rate this book 10 stars I would!
It's an amazing book about a girl named Willa's life.
But beware its a cliff hanger

This is an awesome book. It does have a series with it (this is the fourth book) but you really don't need the whole series for it to make sense. When I read this I read like 5 chapters every night and when I got to the last 5 chapters I got really mad because of the ending. You will know what I mean if you read this. If you do read this you will want to get the book after it. (you'll know what I mean if you read it) The only thing is I don't think it has come out yet.

Summer at Cape Cod is full of fun and laughter for Willa. She is helping her mother with the wedding planning business as well as the everyday business of running a bed and breakfast. Her boyfriend is leaving for a month to play baseball , there is a stray dog that she would like to adopt and she is reading a book a day. Readers, like Willa, will flit from one activity to another without much thought. This book, another in the Wedding Planning Daughter’s series, is perfect for summer reading.
I gave this book 4 stars because I liked this book, it was a really good book. It was about a girl named Willa and she goes to the beach almost every day. When one day a random dog came running up to her with a stick to play fetch with. Willa doesn't know it's her brother's dog until one day when a guy keeps following her around and then she finds out that the dog was his and he was her lost brother. I also liked this book because it is about a dog and it is a mystery and action book.
