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 . . .
