Hey guys!

Here's another review by Bailey!


Q: What is this book about? Can you summarize it a bit?
A: It's about Junie B Jones's Aunt Flo's wedding, and she wanted to be the flower girl 
because her friends Lucielle and Grace taught her how to be a flower girl. She found
lots of flowers, and they used them for petals. And then she sneakily called her aunt to the 
bedroom, and told her that she was going to be her flower girl. But she wasn't because
her husband's little sister (Bo) was going to be the flower girl. Junie B got upset at supper 
and Aunt Flo called back, she said that she could be the flower girl if Bo got sick. At bed time
Junie B Jones wished on a star that Bo would get sick...or just get lice...and her mother told
her to just tell that star not to make that wish come true. Her mother said she would wish upon the star
and the book had a happy ending.

Q: What would you rate this book? Why?
A: 5 stars, because I liked how it had a happy ending and that she still got a few petals from
Bo and she knew what "footloose and fancy free" meant.

Q: Do you know what that means?
A: Hmmm. It means that you..well...Junie B Jones thought it meant to have no socks or shoes on.

Q: What did you like about this book? What did you dislike?
A: I liked that she actually got a few petals and she made friends with Bo. She knew she loved family and she loved a lot of things. 
She realized she loved her aunt more than she thought. I didn't really not like anything...except that at first that Bo was really mean.

Q: Are you going to continue with the series?
A: Yeah probably, just like the first one (Has A Monster Under Her Bed)

Q: Do you have anything else to say to the people reading this?
A: Well..same thing as last time. Start a book blog, and take AR tests on Junie B books.

I hope you enjoyed Bailey's little review of her book, she's such a good reader, and works really hard to answer my questions about her books.

Happy reading!
