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

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

{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 to ...more

Super cute! I loved these triplets and the sweet little plot line. I could picture this book as a kid's movie and will certainly be recommending it often.

My daughter and I read this book together, and she enjoyed it, hence the five stars.

A few problems I had with it:

1. hard to tell the three main characters apart. This is a first person narrative that alternates between the viewpoints of three triplets, Darby, Delaney, and Dawn. Unfortunately, there's not a lot to differentiate between the three characters. Rather, I should say there's not a lot *in the prose* that differentiates between the the triplets. The voice of the narration remains the sa

This book had me on the edge of my seat because it was full of mischief, adventure, and excitement. Three girls, Dawn, Darby, and Delaney, who are triplets do not approve or like their older sister's fiancé, Burton. The triplets think Burton is boring, unattractive, allergic to everything, and not right for Lily. Lily's old boyfriend, Alex, they think was meant for Lily. He always knew how to make her smile, and when she was with him, Lily was always in a happy mood. Lily is preparing to marry B ...more

My child read this for school, and she liked it so much, I decided to read it myself. I believe it's important to read what you children read every once in a while. It's a good enough read for a girl in 3rd-4th grade, but I found Revenge of the Flower Girls too predictable. I expected more suspense throughout. I remember reading a slew of Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys books when I was that age, and I still prefer mysteries to comedies. I guess not much has changed.

Revenge of the flower girls was a very funny book. What I liked about the book was that the triplets where trying to figure out how to sabotage her older sisters wedding because they do not like the future husband. Proof of the claim I just made would be, "It was Delaney's idea that we ruin Lily's wedding. She'll probably argue and say it wasn't, but it was." I love this book and I would definitely read it again!!

Fun cute read! The girls do get in a bit of mischief but it is for the right reasons. And they are willing to admit they may have been wrong about some things which is nice. I like the relationship the girls have with both of their parents, even though they are divorced, and their older sister. Also really like that the girls are obsessed with presidents, voting and politics! Very refreshing for 11 year old girls to love something with substance!

Recommend for 8 and up

I loved, loved, loved this book and cannot wait to read the other books in this series. I felt like a kid again as this book brought back memories of when I read The Babysitters' Club series years ago.

I recommend this book for young audiences, as it's not the best in vocabulary and not very descriptive. I admit this book was fun to read and I was amused by Dawn, Darby and Delaney's (the main characters) personalities. However, this type of book isn't normally a type I'd LOVE reading.

Super cute!

This is a fun, fast read with three smart and clever girls who manage to be mischievous without ever being mean. I enjoyed all the history and president trivia as well as the family dynamics.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. At first I thought the triplets were annoying, but the characters really grew on me. The only concern I have was that the plot seemed to happen a little two quickly.

Triplets Dawn, Darby, and Delaney Brewster love their older sister, Lily, but they really don't like Burton, the man she is about to marry. They much prefer Lily's old boyfriend, Alex, who made Lily laugh and was nice to them as well. As Lily gets closer to saying, "I do," the girls team up to sabotage her wedding and reunite her with her long-lost love.

Though the pink dresses on this book's front cover might suggest froth and frivolity, there is much more to the story than first meets the eye.

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 availab ...more

My copy was provided by Netgalley.
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 do ...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

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 ma ...more
