5.0 out of 5 starsLucy B. Parker Meets Reality TV and Prepares for a (Don't Say It) Wedding
Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2012
Lucy B. Parker is still the same girl who loves cupcakes, wears colorful clothes, gives lots of advice, wants to get her period, writes emails to talk show host Dr. Maude and lives with her "frister" (friend + sister) Laurel Moses, but now she's that same girl whose mom and frother (friend + father instead of stepfather) are planning a "small intimate gathering" (don't say "wedding" unless you want to risk her mother's wrath and tears). When a reality show comes to film them, the drama gets amplified, and Lucy, in typical fashion, has to figure out how to handle her "bloversharing" and get advice from someone other than her baby brother Ziggy. This latest in the series hilariously skewers reality TV but realistically looks at how blended families connect and share, and for those who've been following the series, a major development occurs (though I am still waiting for Dr. Maude to write back!). Robin Palmer manages to keep this series extremely up to date regarding technology and modern tween lives while also dealing with timeless topics in a humorous way. This is a fun read whether you've read the whole series or not (though having kept up with Lucy and Laurel's adventures does add to the reading enjoyment).

Having read the other Lucy B Parker books, I was really excited that this one was coming out. The first 3 books were amazing, and I loved every page of them. This one was good, but I was expecting more. It was a little boring, and I felt like it could have had more. Overall, it was a good read though.
