Violet in Bloom: A Flower Power Book by Lauren Myracle (NY: Abrams, 2010).
I missed the first installment of this cute tween series, but had no problem following this adorable story about a diverse group of friends who share flower names and computer savvy. Their new website, Luv Ya Bunches, is up and running and now they want to devote their FFF (Flower Friends Forever) power to good projects. The nasty cheese crackers at school become their focus as they decide to protest the poor nutrition and rally for healthy snacks. The girls also have individual problems to overcome, including boy troubles, social embarrassment, pushy classmates, and an institutionalized parent. Perfect tween reading material! Recommended for ages 9 & up.
