    Funny book kept me reading

    While Barbara and I didn't agree on everything, like our feelings about the cats in our families, I could sympathize with her from the first chapter, where she is thinking that she doesn't know what she wants to do after high school and college and reflects despairingly that her guidance counselor, an English teacher, probably thinks that life should have a topic sentence. Most of us have felt sometimes that people expected things of us that we weren't ready for, that we were forgotten or left out of something exciting, or perhaps that we have been caught in the middle of a dispute between our parents and another relative, whether it's our sister or another relative, just as Barbara finds when she relays her college-freshman sister Rosemary's news of her engagement, plans to marry very soon, and description of her soon-to-be in-laws. Cleary shows us the exciting, awkward, and sometimes frustrating situations of teen and family life with humor and enough details to make us feel like we're living through them--but probably enjoying them much more than we did the similar situations in our own lives. Every now and then there was a detail that reminded me that the book was originally written about forty years before when I was reading it, in late summer of 2001--like Barbara's aunt who works in the corsit department of a department store, which surprised me, since I didn't know they still had those by the late 1950's--but these truly dated moments were few and were outweighed by the timelessness of Rosemary's relationships with her parents and fiance as the wedding day nears and Barbara's relationships with her bride-to-be sister, her younger brother, his cat about whom she has conflicting feelings, and two boys from her high school, so that whenever I hear about someone preparing for a wedding, I think happily of reading this book.

    I LOVE this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Sister of the Bride" is a fantastic book. the story follows Barbra (Age 16)during her junior year of high school. Barbra's life is upside-down. Two boys are asking her out and she isn't sure which one she likes better, or if she even likes either of them! Barbra feels pressure to decide and grow up when she finds out her 18 year old sister Rosemary is getting married. This book is great for girls 10-14 who dream about their weddings someday. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not a Happy Camper with Barnes & Noble

    Very disappointed with Barns & Noble, I had order these book via Nook by mistake in the beginning of December 2012 and I have not received my refund yet. And had to go to the actual store and buy the books for my daughter. So it's like I've purchased this book twice

    H

    That was enough for me. "No!" I shouted. "No way!"
    The arguing in the room stopped. Everyone looked up at me with mixed expressions of shock and anger. Everyone exept Madge, which for some reason made me madder.
    "What did you just say

    I LOVE YOU B. CLEARY!!!!!!!

    Beverly Cleary is my most favorite author EVER! She is so amazing! Her books are so stupendous. They have really made a big impact on my life since I started reading about little darling Ramona Quimby at a young age. Now she is the most adored character I have enjoyed reading about among all the millions of books I have read in all my ten years and three months. The Sister of the Bride is another breathtaking book by my role model: Beverly Cleary.

    Sister of My BRIDE

    This book was AWESOME!!!!!!!! I read it at school for my other library book. The reason I dont have 2 library books is because my teacher wants us to have an IR BOOK. It stands for Independent Reading Book. Then the day for library came and I have had the book for 4 weeks and we cant have thhe book for that long. I would love it, if you would just buy it and read it. And also, give it a review. Beverly Cleary is the best

    Could Have Been Better

    It was okay, but it dragged on a little. I think it could have been a lot more interesting.
