Dive back into the series that Newbery Honor and Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Rita Williams Garcia says “brims with hilarity and sisterly hijinks."
The Silver sisters return to Cape Cod in this sequel to The Forget-Me-Not Summer, which Booklist called “reminiscent of the Penderwick series” in its starred review.
Wedding bells are ringing on the Cape! It’s summer again and Marigold, Zinnia, and Lily are heading back to Pruet to help bride-to-be Aunt Sunny plan her big day. But cake and decorations aren’t the only items on the girls’ agenda this summer. Marigold can’t wait to escape the embarrassment of being cut from one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters—especially after she bragged to all of her friends that she was in it. And Zinnie is trying her hardest to write a story good enough to get into an elite writing program. Zinnie also meets her first boy-who-is-a-friend, a cute kid named Max.
But when it becomes clear that Max has eyes for Marigold, Zinnie can’t contain her hurt, and it leads her to betray Marigold with an unthinkable sister crime. With a wedding on the horizon, and tension simmering between them, will the Silver sisters be able to overcome their hurt in time for the ceremony? After all, beneath the pain of their fight, all Marigold and Zinnie want to do is give Sunny what she’s always given them: a summer to remember forever.
The summer fun continues! Be sure to catch The Silver Moon of Summer, the last book in the Silver Sisters series.
