Description
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"


About the Author
When Lauren Myracle was thirteen, she spent hours lying on her bed, staring at the cracks on her ceiling and wishing so hard to be magic. She wanted to bend spoons with her mind, talk to her sister telepathically, and rearrange her molecules so she could walk through walls. She wanted fairies to leave gumdrops on her windowsill. She wanted well-known paths to unexpectedly lead to mystical lands and times. She also wished she would grow up to become a writer and that part came true! (Which is not to say the other parts didn t. . . .) She s written many books for tweens and teens, including the bestselling Winnie Years series and the Flower Power series. She lives with her family in Colorado, and she thinks life is the most magical adventure of all.
