A PATRON SAINT FOR JUNIOR BRIDESMAIDS, by Shelley Tougas

bridesmaid

The story: Mary Margaret Miller is done talking to God directly, so she keeps a notebook of patron saints who can help with the heavy lifting–and there’s a bunch of that this summer. Not only is she the junior bridesmaid for her cousin’s wedding, she and her brother are stuck living at Grandma’s while Mom and Dad are finding a new house in a new town; Mom’s been telling fibs and Mary has to cover, and her cousin Eden is so shy it’s a miracle she ever got engaged at all. What with trying to live down punching a bully in the face, and wondering what to do about the cute boy next door, Mary needs all the heavenly help she can get!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  Here’s a cute story about a girl learning to stand up for herself.
