    Revenge of the Christmas Angels is about the Brewster Triplets such as Dean,Darby and Delaney. Al three love christmas the decorations the carols and seeing there Aunt Jane.They also the like when they go to there neighbors house and have there home made hot coco and you can't forget the presents. Although this year it dint go as planed starting with the christmas pageant. They wanted to be the three wise men but instead they got angels. And now things are going from bad to worse there moms flight is delayed they can't visit there aunt Jane because of the snow and people robed there neighbors hose and took all the decorations.But at the end they find a way to get there mom and sole the history of the stollen decorations.I would recommend this book to fifth graders because it is not that challenging for the sixth grades but it might be good for the fifth or even the forth grades. I also recommend it to people that like A to Z mysteries books because this book is pretty similar.

    245 pages. Boring book. There is discussion of a high school couple and has lots of boyfriend/girlfriend content. After two chapters I am so bored. Skip this one. Not recommended.

    See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten! My copy was an ARC I got from YA Books Central for review.Diversity Rating: 1 – TokenismRacial-Ethnic: 1 (The Brewsters’ neighbor Mr. Neighbor is black)QUILTBAG: 0Disability: 0Intersectionality: 0Sometimes, the Internet fails to tell you important things such as the fact Revenge of the Angels is a sequel and not a standalone like I thought it was. That was probably just my research fail, but it ended up making little difference to me. I don’t dabble in MG often, but Revenge of the Angels reminds me why I do!Dawn, Darby, and Delaney Brewster are a very driven set of triplets with the goal of conquering the United States via becoming the president, Speaker of the House, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, respectively. Right now, they’re focused on snagging the church pageant roles of the Three Wise Men they were robbed of. Their outrage over being denied the roles solely because they’re girls results in all sorts of fun. If someone tries to tell my niece she can’t do something or play a certain role because of her gender, I hope she does what the Brewster girls do and fights it.The hijinks they get into looking for their beloved Mr. Neighbor’s family heirloom Santa figurine makes for a fun, believable B-plot. Late-night surveillance, night-vision goggles, a game of detective,… I would have done many things to end up in their shoes when I was 11/12, but such games were only in my daydreams or the monthly spy books/gadgets I ordered from the Scholastic catalogs my English teachers handed out in class. I’m an old fart now, but the Brewster girls reminded me of what it was like to be their age. If you didn’t read Revenge of the Bridesmaids like me, the girls will get you up to speed on what little you need to know, so you won’t be lost.At times, it can be hard to tell the girls apart since all three share POV chapters written in first-person. Darby is the dreamer, Dawn is the leader, and Delane is the one who can’t stay still. They sound different enough, but their internal monologues have a tendency to blend together. Sometimes, I only remembered who was narrating because she’d say her sisters’ names and I went through the process of elimination! They seemed to have an extraordinary amount of freedom for their age too. My parents wouldn’t let me walk down on the street on my own or with friends, let alone all over town. Then again, I grew up heavily sheltered. Suburbia is a serious drug.Whether or not you’ve read Revenge of the Bridesmaids, you’ll surely laugh out loud and enjoy the ride throughout Revenge of the Angels. It’s the perfect read for when you want something winter-flavored and sweet as sugar.

    In this sequel to Revenge of the Flower Girls, triplets Dawn, Darby, and Delaney Brewster are having a disappointing Christmas season. First, they are told by the woman in charge of their church Christmas pageant that because they are girls, they cannot play the roles of the three wise men and must instead play angels. Then their neighbors, The Neighbors, lose their prized Santa Claus candy dish to a thief. On top of that, the weather is bad in Boston, where their mom and sister Lily are visiting graduate schools, and it looks like they might be stranded there for the holiday. As the girls work to solve the mystery of the missing candy dish, and try to choose an appropriate gift for their mother, they also do their best not to lose hope that Christmas will still be a festive and magical day.Like the first book, this story is also told by all three of the girls in alternating chapters. Though there are greater attempts in the text to differentiate the girls from each other - Dawn wants to be president of the United States, Delaney wants to be speaker of the house, and Darby wants to be chief justice, for example - their voices are still largely indistinguishable. Because their names are also so similar, it is very difficult to keep the three personalities straight, and without referring back to the start of each chapter, it can be hard to remember who is speaking.The story itself is much more believable in this sequel. The girls' meddling in their sister's wedding seemed far-fetched and beyond their capabilities, but trying to solve a local mystery and fighting against perceived injustice in the church pageant's casting are much more likely activities for eleven-year-old girls. The girls' father also comes across as very sympathetic in this story, and both parents, though divorced from each other, are warm, caring people who get along amicably without a lot of dramatic fighting, which is a nice change of pace from the typical depiction of bitterly divorced parents.This is a fun holiday-themed read. It's not as well-written as The Best Christmas Pageant Ever or as clever as The True Story of Christmas by Anne Fine, but it's still a great way to get into the holiday spirit over Christmas break. The girls' spirited personalities, strong vocabularies, and sharp intellects are delightful, and the lighthearted subject matter is perfect for a holiday escape. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

    E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineAfter all of the trauma and drama in Revenge of the Flower Girls, Darby, Dawn and Delaney are back. This time, they are irritated that they have to be angels in the Christmas pageant at their church when they think their try out for the Three Wise Men was brilliant. Nothing will change Ms. Higginbotham's mind, though, so they are stuck. There is plenty going on to take their minds off the play-- Lily, who was supposed to be home for Christmas break, is visiting Aunt Jane with their mother, while she is looking at library science schools. The triplets have to take their dog, Quincy, to stay in their father's bachelor apartment, which ends with Quincy eating their father's couch and the family going back to mom's house to stay. There, they find several mysteries-- someone has stolen a Christmas heirloom from the Neighbors' house, another neighbor has a cake that vanishes, and their own Christmas decorations on their porch have been trashed. At first, the girls suspect Lucas, but he helps with their investigation instead. When Lily and their mother are stuck in Boston because of snow, and their father has to go to Houston overnight for his job, the girls are left with Lily's friend Bree as a babysitter, and manage to solve the mystery, finish their Christmas shopping, and solve the casting problem with the play in a typical, take-charge fashion. Strengths: I liked this MUCH more than the first book, since the girls were not so obnoxious! They meddled in things, like Christmas decorations and local mysteries, that 11-year-olds are supposed to meddle in. There were funny spots, fun interactions, and divorced parents who can communicate with each other in a positive fashion. The girls seemed older in this, which makes me wonder if I can buy this book without having the Revenge of the Flower Girls. Hmmm. Weaknesses: This is told in alternating chapters from the three girls' perspectives, but the voices were not at all distinctive. It would have been more successful if this were written in third person omniscient. What I really think: The cover reminded me a bit of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, which is probably why I read it. Do get some students who ask for Christmas themed books. Debating. Would definitely purchase both for an elementary school.

    Review copy: ARC from publisherThe Brewster triplets made me laugh. That they wanted to be wise men was fantastic and I was rooting for them the whole time. They plotted and planned and worked towards their goals even when they seemed nearly impossible.This book worked much better for me than the first one. I had trouble keeping the triplets straight in Revenge of the Flower Girls, but that became easier in this second book. I also appreciated that there were several plot lines, but this time none of them seemed quite so serious as the prevention of a marriage. Added together though, they provided just the right amount of tension.The girls keep getting themselves into trouble, but they also manage to help each other back out of it. I had to giggle as they fell in and out of scrapes throughout the book. The girls use both their wits and courage to solve their problems and it was a fun time watching it all unfold. This is a nice light realistic middle grade novel that is sure to be a hit especially around the holidays.http://readingtl.blogspot.com/2015/10...

    Revenge of the Angels is the Best Christmas Pageant Ever meets Who Stole the Twelve Days of Christmas with a dash of Madeleine L'Engle's Austin Family's Christmas spirit. The story takes place in Johnson City and Ziegler's writing captures the easy central Texas rhythm. The first book about the Brewster triplets, Revenge of the Flower Girls, is about the three sisters breaking up a wedding and focuses on their college age sister's love story. The Revenge of the Angels is totally focused on the triplets who don't want to be the sweet angels in the annual Christmas pageant. Instead they want to be the Wise People and set out to make that happen. A well written middle grade novel with light kid appealing humor that also has a neighborhood Christmas mystery.

    In this sequel to Revenge of the Flower Girls, Dawn, Darby, and Delaney are really disappointed with the way Christmas is turning out. First, they were cast as angels instead of the Three Wise Men (Wise People?) like they had hoped for. Then their older sister is off to look at library schools with their mom for the days leading up to Christmas. Finally, someone is stealing Christmas decorations in the neighborhood. Putting their three brains together, they hope to solve all of these problems and save Christmas before it is too late. Told in alternating voices of each of the triplets like the first book. Recommended for grades 3 & up.

    This was a good book. I guess I would recommend it since it is I could say the second book of Revenge of the bridesmaids. If you wanna read this I recommend you read the first one cause this one has some spoilers and you need to understand the book, and the first one has MUCH more action than the first but still good. :)

    As advertised - instead of the Herdmans, we have the Brewster triplets with their own spin on the traditional holiday presentation. Lots of funny bits. Wish I had read their first adventure to better understand the older sister's story arc.

    The triplets are at it again, and Jennifer Ziegler doesn't let us down, bringing another fantastic read. Both of the "revenge" books are wonderful. I hope readers will be blessed with many more.

    Eh, not a fan of the séance they held. Aside from that, cute! I could see fans of Junie B. Jones loving this series.
