Overview

After years of watching couples come to blows over ice sculptures, Abby wants no part of the family business. She’d rather spend weekends kicking a soccer ball or antagonizing Noah, the cute son of a famous pastry chef–not doing the Electric Slide.

Then Abby’s barely legal sister, Carol, does the unthinkable–she announces she’s getting married and wants Abby to be her maid of honor. Clearly, Carol has lost her mind! Will Abby soon lose hers?

So what if Carol turns into Bridezilla? So what if the dresses are hideous? So what if the invitations get messed up? So what if Noah looks extra hot with frosting in his hair? Abby can handle it. After all, it’s just one day. Right?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7-10-Abby Beaumont knows all about weddings-they make ordinary women turn into "Bridezillas." After all, her parents own a catering hall, and she and her older sister have helped with these events all their lives. The girls have sworn they will never get married, but then Carol meets Tucker Robb. Everyone, except for Abby, enters into the planning with enthusiasm and excitement. But soon her family turns into the worst of customers, bickering over nearly every detail. The characterizations are first rate-Bridezilla herself, the "evil" mother of the bride, the "poor" fiance, the "unlistened to" father, and the bratty younger sister. Add Abby's first boyfriend and the stage is set for a humorous view of family celebrations and relationships. The plot moves smoothly as the protagonist is inextricably drawn into the preparations, and into the role of bridesmaid. At times, she seems to be the only levelheaded member of the group, even as she sometimes appears to be subtly sabotaging the big day. A fun read with a surprise twist at the end.-Janet Hilbun, Texas Woman's University, Denton, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
