Life has been good to Becky Bloomwood: She's become the top personal shopper at Barneys and she's living happily with her boyfriend, Luke, in Manhattan's West Village. But with her best friend, Suze, engaged, how can Becky fail to notice that her own ring finger is bare? Not that she's been thinking about marriage (or diamonds) or anything.
Then Luke proposes Problem is, two other people are planning her wedding: Becky's overjoyed mother--who has been waiting forever to host a backyard wedding, with the bride resplendent in Mum's frilly old gown; and her high-society soon-to-be mother-in-law--who insists on a glamorous, all-expenses-paid affair at the Plaza. Both weddings, on separate continents, on the same day . . . and Becky can't seem to turn down either one. Can everyone's favorite shopaholic tie the knot before everything unravels?

About the Author
Some people say I think like a child. Well, as a children's book author, I don't think that's such a bad thing. In school, when I was about 11, there were four of us who hung out together. We liked to listen to old-time jazz, play mah jong and walk in the country. The other girls thought we were weird and laughed at us. Sometimes it hurt but at least we had each other. Children can be so unkind. I hope that through Tizzy, a few kids at least might stop and think before teasing someone just because they're different. A J Oliver
