Revenge of the Flower Girls
One bride. Two guys. 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 United States presidents. But this year they’re stuck helping their big sister, Lily, plan her 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?

Jennifer says . . .
When we love someone and we think that person is in trouble, we will go to desperate measures to help them. Anything from lying, to spying, to possibly even putting ourselves in danger or breaking the law. Revenge of the Flower Girls is about going to such lengths – multiplied by three.
I have done extreme and embarrassing things in order to protect my kids, but I’ve never created disasters like the Brewster triplets. While it’s noble to care about someone so much that you are willing to take risks, things might not be as clear-cut as we think. We have to ask ourselves – is this what is best for them, or is it what we want for them? Because sometimes those things are the same, and sometimes they are very different.
