The Wedding Planner's Daughter by Coleen Murtagh Paratore -Tween

Rating: 4/5 Stars

About the Book: Twelve year old Willa Havisham reads classics, eats cherry cordials and dreams and wishes for her mom Stella to fall in love. Stella is a glamorous wedding planner, but after the tragic death of her true love and Willa's dad, Stella can't seem to get close to fallng for anyone. When she does, she moves herself and Willa to a new home. This time to duo has made their home in Bramble, Cape Cod and just happen to move in next door to the very handsome and eligable Sam, who is Willa's english teacher. Willa loves Bramble and is making friends, and even finds a crush-worthy boy at her school! She also schemes to get Sam and Stella together. But before long, all the wishing, hoping and dreaming backfires. Can Willa save the day and find her happy ending?

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Willa is such a wonderful charming girl-I think she earns a spot up there with Anne Shirley for big dreamers and hopeless romantics. This book is a good old fashioned story in a modern setting. Willa is spunky and creative and you can't help but root for her to succeed. The setting of Cape Cod adds to the magic of the story, and I wanted to take a vacation to Bramble to hang out with Willa there. With lots of romance and lots of heart, this is the perfect read for a lazy rainy afternoon.
