Katie-Rose, Milla, Yasaman, and Violet have confronted their share of challenges in fifth grade: a dead hamster, turtle theft, trapeze lessons, and pesky boys, just to name a few. Nothing can stop these four fabulous friends. Well, nothing except for their archnemesis, the evil Modessa (a.k.a. Medusa ). Somehow, Modessa has recruited one of the sweetest girls in the class to be her new sidekick. The flower friends are determined to save Elena, even if it means braving Modessa's wrath. But it will also mean getting Katie-Rose to focusshe's a bit too busy NOT flirting with cute-but-annoying Preston. And then there's Yasaman's little sister's birthday bubblegum party, which the four friends promised to organize . . . if it's possible to call anything involving 30 kindergartners organized. Luckily, Violet is back to herself and ready to lead the Flowers to their most glorious triumph. With mean girls, romance, and tons of fifth-grade drama, this critically acclaimed friendship series shows that author Lauren Myracle has her finger firmly on the pulse of tween girldom. ("Booklist")
