Read from December 10 to 15, 2011

This was more of a 3.5 star book. It was one of those that was too good when I compare it to other books which merited three stars, but not as good as those which merited four stars. This novel tells the story of Victoria, a foster home “graduate” who finds herself emancipated at age 18, which translates to being alone, homeless and emotionally scarred by her too many to count foster home and group home placements. Mistrusting of nearly everyone, low in self-esteem and unable to love, she finds her only outlet in flowers and the meaning and messages they convey. Victoria is a character that you want to love, but you also want to yell at her and tell her to wake up and take control of her life. She is also a character that I knew I would miss when I finished reading the book.
