Teenage angst and coming of age in a very civilized way (no body piercing or tattoos..this was written in like the 60's). However same issues still linger for our heroine - is she pretty enough, what should she wear, does he like me etc etc. It was an ok book for such a genre.
Barbarba can hardly believe her older sister is getting married. With all the excitment of wedding plans going on, Barbarba can't help dreaming of the day she will be the bride. She can't wait to fall in love.
But as the big day gets closer, wedding planning often turns into family arguments. Even the bride and groom are bickering over details, and Barbarba's fun-loving sister is turning into a very, practical, grown-up person. Weddings are fun, but all this serious stuff is scary enough to make Barbarba think she's not going to be rushing into a serious relationship any time soon.
If your daughter is standing up in a wedding, this would be a really great book for her to read. It was a favorite in my house for a long time.
