Harry N. Abrams, Inc.
Katie-Rose, Violet, Milla, and Yasaman—four girls with seemingly little in common but their flower names—are nurturing their new friendship and are busy building, their very own social-networking site. Their first flower-power task? A doomed campaign to get their school to serve healthier snacks. The Jelly-Yums they champion—soon dubbed “beans of grossness”—taste like candied beets. And that’s just the start of their troubles. A scheming classmate tries to drive a wedge between Katie-Rose and Yasaman, Violet may have been slammed in a secret journal, and poor Milla unintentionally commits hamstercide. It will take all the strength and genuine affection of these pals to weather a particularly stormy week of fifth grade.


Bestselling author Lauren Myracle brings her understanding of the weight of fifth-grade dramas to another hilarious and memorable book that preteens will love!

Baker & Taylor
In a story told as a series of blog entries, screenplay drafts and journal pages, four new friends work together to build a social networking site while campaigning to improve the school lunch program and outmaneuvering a scheming classmate. By the best-selling author of Luv Ya Bunches.

& Taylor

Fifth-graders Katie-Rose, Violet, Milla, and Yasaman seem to have little in common except their flower-related names, but they nurture their new friendship through a social-networking site and a campaign to have healthier snacks served at school.

It was so fun to jump back into fifth grade with Milla, Violet, Katie-Rose and Yasaman! I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Luv Ya Bunches. There was lots of drama in this book but Myracle deals with it all in a way that's endearing and age-appropriate. I hope the next book has lots more FFF (Flower Friends Forever!) hijinks and lessons about friendship.

Katie-Rose, Violet, Milla, and Yasaman are back for another round of blogging, videos, chats and text messages. This time they face the problems jealousy, a mentally ill parent, crushes, hamster death and a fight for healthier food. All while trying to stay friends.

Myracle once again proves she has an ear for the voices of the tween set. She also knows how to integrate new technology into her writing without it being a gimmick. These two facts make up for the fact that the story takes a bit to get going and some parts are a little implausible.

Good stuff.
