At first glance these four fifth graders have nothing in common. Well, that is, except that they are all named after flowers. So how do they become best friends? It all starts on the first day of school with an accident, a mean girl, and a lost turtle. The four girls will have to come together if they want to end a sinister plot by the reigning queen bee of the school. Luv Ya Bunches skips around from girl to girl to tell the story and even includes instant messages, online chats, and video scripts to liven it up. If you like stories about finding friends or fitting in, this book is for you! Recommended for grades 4-6.
