Starr and the High Seas Wedding Drama

It’s hijinks on the high seas when two flower girls decide to rock the boat on their grandparents’ wedding plans.

Starr’s grandmother, Abuela, has big news: she’s in love! And that’s not all—she’s getting married and taking their whole family on a Mexican cruise to meet her fiancé, Walter, and his family.

But is this couple a good match? Starr and Walter’s granddaughter, Ivy, aren’t so sure. Their grandparents haven’t known each other for very long, and they don’t seem to have much in common. Plus, they live over 1,000 miles apart. Can’t they see that they’re going to end up with broken hearts?

Starr and Ivy know what they have to do: stop their grandparents’ romance before it sinks!

This is a multi-cultural story that includes some Spanish language and Hispanic & Latino customs and references.

Featuring humor and fast-paced fun, the Flower Girl World children’s book series is committed to diversity in children’s books as it highlights themes of friendship, leadership, acceptance, growing up, and girl power.

Blogger Melissa Glynn of Julia’s Bookbag says,” I think girls would just FLIP over this series! I love the message, which does not center around dressing up and looking pretty. The stories focus on friendships, on finding confidence in one’s abilities, and on doing what you can to assist others.”

This young readers’ chapter book is the third in the Flower Girl World series. It is a celebration of flower girl fun and will appeal to any young girl, whether or not she is a flower girl in a wedding. If she is in a wedding, it makes the perfect flower girl gift!

Hott Review:

Starr and the High Seas Wedding Drama is a very good book. I really enjoyed Starr and Ivy and couldn’t wait to share their fun with my younger nieces.

I didn’t love that Ivy and Starr began the book trying to split up their grandparents but they redeemed themselves in the end and I believe many will learn great lessons from the girls mischief.

My favorite part of Starr and the High Seas Wedding Drama? Well, honestly it’s that my pre-teen daughter enjoyed it well enough to read it several times to her younger cousins & to herself.

I’m not generally a huge fan of books with multi-languages, but Ms. Woolley pulled this off in such a way that it all just flows.
