"Ginnie was delighted when she was asked to be a junior bridesmaid. But her joy was short-lived. Her first shock came minutes after she read the invitation. A hard-packed snowball, tossed in fun by her friend Geneva, struck her on the cheekbone, grazing her eye--which began to turn black. A bridesmaid with a black eye! Impossible! Nothing for it but to cancel plans for joining the wedding party. That calamity, however, was only the beginning. One crisis followed on the heels of another as Ginnie and her parents arranged to attend the ceremony as guests of the groom. The Christmas wedding was to be held in Nantucket. They were to go by plane, and the weather was uncertain. Then Ginnie came down with a virus--and at the last minute the cat had kittens, which couldn't be found. How Ginnie did get to the wedding, where she had a wonderful time after all, makes a spirited and suspenseful story, which is sure to please Miss Woolley's many readers."
