Rent a Bridesmaid

Publisher: Doubleday

Review

Tilly's best friend, Matty, is dreading having to behave all day and wear a frilly pink dress at her Aunt Rachel's wedding - but being a bridesmaid is Tilly's idea of heaven.

Ideally, she would like to be the bridesmaid at her mum and dad's wedding, but it's been just Tilly and dad at home for quite a while. Until mum comes back, she decides to get some practice and puts an advert in the window of her local shop, offering professional bridesmaid services for a very small fee.

With her characteristic skill and empathy, Jacqueline Wilson weaves a magical, tale of love, loss, diversity and friendship as Tilly learns that life's realities don't always match our dreams - but can still be worthwhile, happy and rewarding.
