Overview

The Flower Power books follow the funny fifth-grade adventures of four girls with little in common but their flower names who, nevertheless, blossom into the greatest of friends.
Life for the Flower Power girls is never boring. With Milla still madly in crush with sweet Max, Katie-Rose is left wondering why everyone doesn’t find fifth-grade boys as disgusting as she does. Especially pesky, annoying Preston, whose new favorite pastime is throwing erasers at Katie-Rose’s head and who always seems to be around at Katie-Rose’s most embarrassing moments. Yasaman isn’t quite ready for a boyfriend either, but she does have a brilliant matchmaking plan for two of her favorite people, and she recruits the other girls to join. 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 “Lock-In,” a teacher-chaperoned evening of fun, fabulosity, and possibly even romance. The trouble? Ms. Perez isn’t planning on coming. And when the fourth flower friend, Violet, mysteriously pulls out, too, it seems as if the Lock-In will be no fun at all. But these flowers don’t wilt so easily . . .

Praise for Oopsy Daisy: A Flower Power Book
“Myracle proves, once again, that she has her finger firmly on the pulse of tween girldom.” – Booklist

“Myracle perfectly captures the nuances of fifth-grade life. 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.” – Kirkus Reviews

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)
