The Wedding Planner’s Daughter, Coleen Murtagh Paratore (2006)
Written from the perspective of twelve-year-old Willafred Havisham, this sweet story is the perfect young adult mix of romance and whimsy. The views, the family and friends, and the matchmaker plots are all charmingly told within the framework of Willa’s first and most important goal: to grow firm roots somewhere- roots that include a father.
Recommended for young readers with a romantic side, 9-13 years old.
