Overview

Life for the Flower Power girls is never boring. Milla, still madly in crush with sweet Max, wonders if it’s time—dun dun dun!—for the two of them to actually HOLD HANDS. Eeek! Katie-Rose, on the other hand, can’t help but wonder when—or if—she will ever be crush-worthy, especially since the only boy to pay her any attention is pesky, annoying Preston, whose favorite pastime is throwing erasers at Katie-Rose’s head. Violet, however, has bigger issues than boys on her mind. Her mom is finally scheduled to be discharged from the psychiatric hospital where she’s been undergoing treatment, but what if her homecoming doesn’t go as planned? Luckily, Yasaman has a foolproof plan for distracting her friends from their worries. The targets: beloved teachers Mr. Emerson and Ms. Perez, who are meant for each other, even if they don’t know it. The goal: to bring those lovebirds together at their school’s “Kids Night In,” a teacher-chaperoned evening of fun, fabulosity, and possibly even romance . . .

Kirkus Reviews
The flower friends play matchmaker in Myracle's (Violet in Bloom, 2010, etc.) third volume in the Flower Power series. With last month's Snack Attack behind them, fifth-graders Milla, Violet, Yasaman (Yaz) and Katie-Rose are ready to take on a new project. Milla's teacher, Mr. Emerson, is goofy and charming, but he's always telling the class that he has "no one to go home to accept a dust bunny named Maude." Yaz adores her teacher, Ms. Perez, and knows that she's looking for her "Mr. Right." Yaz is positive they'd be perfect for one another, so the girls launch Plan Teacherly Lurve to set them up. But romance isn't the only thing on the flower friends' minds. Violet struggles to adjust to her mom's return from a mental hospital; Milla wants to rescue a classmate from the clutches of mean girls Modessa and Quin; Yaz finds herself unexpectedly enrolled in trapeze lessons; and Katie-Rose worries that they're growing up too fast--although a certain boy has caught her attention. Myracle perfectly captures the nuances of fifth-grade life, where stinky farts are another form of flirting and brownies can make everything better. Readers will certainly relate to the girls' struggles to grow up but not leave childhood behind just yet. Milla, Violet, Yaz and Katie-Rose continue to charm; here's hoping they have more hijinks in store. (Fiction. 9-13)

This was definitely my favorite Flower Power book. I'm going to be a sophomore in high school in 2 weeks, but I find that Lauren Myracle really knows how to write an interesting story. Despite the fact that the girls are 5th graders, I love reading about them. Their romance is great and I can't get over how absolutely adorable Preston and Katie-Rose are! I loved the bit where they were at the lock-in and I was definitely rooting for Mr. Emerson and Ms. Perez along with the girls. There's a lot of diversity in this series, which I love. Katie-Rose is asian, Milla is caucasian with two moms, Violet is African American, and Yasaman is muslim. Even better Mr. Emerson only has one arm, Ms. Perez is Hispanic and slightly chubby, Violet's mom went through depression, and Natalia wears headgear. It's a hilarious series and makes me laugh and wish I was friends with the girls. Can't wait to read the next one!

The third "Flower Power/Luv Ya Bunches" book is awesome! It is fresh and exciting, with a little touch of romance and warmth and sprinkled with tears and especially laughter all the way. Katie-Rose, the tomboyish, energetic enthusiast, is worrying about her FFFs (Flower Friends Forever) growing up too fast-or herself growing up too slow. Violet, the quiet, in-control "wise old owl", is frustrated and a little scared of her mom, who has been just discharged with a clean bill of health from the California State Regional Mental Hospital and is forgetful, frightened and just not her mom anymore. Milla, the girly, innocent cupcake, is trying her hardest to save a girl from facing the same situation she did a mere few months ago while bashfully struggling with a crush on Max. And Yasaman, the smart, shy sweetheart of the group, is......well, I won't spoil it for you. This is a fantastic book of love and humor that girls ages 10-13 will love. A great modern almost-classic! Well done, Ms. Myracle! You rock. Signed, marciabradyfan, aka littlehousegirl
