maybe the Avondale School isn't so awful after all — until her own body starts to freak out.
In the middle of her English presentation on the Victorian Language of Flowers, strange
words pop into her head, and her body seems to tingle and hum. Impulsively, Laurel gives
the love bouquet she made to demonstrate the language to her spinster English teacher.
When that teacher unexpectedly and immediately finds romance, Laurel suspects that
something — something magical — is up. With her new friend, Kate, she sets out to discover
the origins and breadth of her powers by experimenting on herself and others. But she can’t
seem to find any living experts in the field of flower powers to guide her. And her bouquets
don't always do her bidding, especially when it comes to her own crush, Justin. Rumors
about Laurel and her flowers fly across campus, and she's soon besieged by requests from
girls — both friends and enemies — who want their lives magically transformed — just in
time for prom
Again, I thought this book was AMAZING. This year was probably the best out of all of the
years that had the best selection of new books. I thought it was amazing that Amy Brecount
white had incorporated flowers with the whole entire story altogether. I was always
fascinated with herbs and flowers (as I'm Chinese and I used to dream about being a
herbalist) but this gave me new inspiration, and I really really want to read more of her
work! Congrats to Amy Brecount White, her book ahs made the top books of 2010!
