This is another in the American Girls Short Stories series about Samantha Parkington, a nine-year-old orphan girl living in the America of 1904. In this book, the families are preparing for Uncle Gard and Cornelia's wedding, and Samantha and Cornelia's sisters are preparing to be bride's maids. However, when a disaster strikes, it is up to Samantha to save the wedding!
The final chapter of this book is a wonderfully interesting look at weddings in 1904 America, and has instructions for making a tussie-mussie (a small bouquet carried by bridesmaids). My twelve-year-old daughter is a devoted fan of Samantha, and deeply enjoyed this book. We both recommend this book to you.

The other sister is a very young girl named Alice. Agnes and Agatha are the same age as Samantha. One day Alice wanted to try on her sister's wedding veil. But she rips it. Then Samantha saves the day and lets Cornelia use her mother's old wedding veil. And it turns out to be a beautiful wedding.
