Amazon Description:

Jenny’s favorite uncle, Peter, is getting married, and everyone is happy happy—everyone, that is, except Jenny. While her family runs about getting ready for the traditional Chinese wedding—preparing for the tea ceremony, exchanging good-luck money called hungbau, helping the bride with her many dresses—Jenny is crying on the inside. How is she supposed to still be Uncle Peter’s number-one girl, with her new aunt Stella around? Maybe if she can stop the day’s events from happening, he won’t get married at all…

Mischievous kids will love following Lenore Look and Yumi Heo’s feisty heroine from Henry’s First-Moon Birthday in this charming story that also illuminates the many traditions of the Chinese wedding.
