Book Review - Hailey Twitch and the Wedding Glitch

About the Book
Something very wonderful is happening right at this very moment. And that wonderful thing is called being a flower girl! Yay! The flower girl is the most important part in a wedding. That is because she is in charge of dropping beautiful rose petals onto the ground right in front of the bride.

Hailey Twitch and her spirited sprite Maybell, return in an all new adventure, Hailey Twitch and the Wedding Glitch (Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, ISBN: 978-1-4022-2447-8, Juvenile Fiction/Chapter Book, November 2011, Trade Paper, $6.99 US/ £4.99 UK) in the fourth installment to the hilarious series. And this time around, she gets to be a flower girl in her cousin’s wedding! But this is no easy job. Her cousin Angela gets to be a flower girl too and let’s just say the two girls have a difference of opinion. And on top of the wedding, Maybelle got her magic back and now she might have to leave! Will the mischief-making duo make it through the wedding without a disaster and come up with a scheme to get Maybelle to stay?

My Take on the Book
This was another great installment in the Hailey Twitch series. I have had the chance to read the others as well and my eldest daughter always enjoys seeing what kind of trouble Hailey can get herself into. This book does not hold back and instead you find yourself laughing and having a smile on your face the entire way through the book. The author should be proud of her collection of stories and this one leads the pack. If you have never read this series of books with your daughters you definitely should!
