My best friend gave me this book, but sadly I didn't particularly like it. It wasn't necessarily bad, but it wasn't for me. Who knows, maybe if I re-read it, I'll like it.

EDIT: I won't change my rating, because I don't do stuff like that unless I have a legitimate reason to hate the book, but I will say that the author said something racist to me, so... yea.

I bought this cute indie book through my Kindle. The writing was structured in a way that made it hard to read; it didn't flow. At some points the writing is pretty sloppy. I did like the overall theme and ideas, but the way they were presented was less than santisfactory. The tone of the book came off as preachy, which really turned me off. I did finish the book. Overall I wouldn't be able recommend this book to anyone. :(

The character creeps me out in the sample. Therefore, I am not buying it. The syntax is also weird.

I'm leaving my original review however after reading the tweets from this author I'm changing my rating. I'm appalled at his comments.
I loved the story. The ONLY issue I had with this book was the grammatical errors...commas, semi-colons, etcetera, where they shouldn't be. It threw me off enough to almost want to stop. I had to keep telling myself to ignore it so I could read into the story itself.

I did fall in love with the characters. They kept me involved. :)

What can I possibly say about this book? It was awesome. Normally I don't say that about a hippie book, but I have to admit it exceeding my expectations... Though I still wish there was some zombie violence or a murderer on the lose... And the covers a little cheery... But, all of that put aside it was great.

Carz, you did a good job with this book. :] (Next time put a murderer on the lose!!!)

Was going to read this, then I found this tweet by the author and have decided this doesn't belong on anyone's bookshelf. "I'd rather have a pedophile in office rather than a democrat any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Pedophiles only screw kids while democrats screw everyone."

I didn’t read this book. I would just like to point out that the author endorses pedophiles which I find disturbing. “A pedophile only screws kids. Democrats screw everyone.” A tweet by the author. Judge for yourself.

This man writes young adult books but had this to say on Twitter when a Republican candidate was accused of being a pedophile, I quote “I’d rather have a pedophile in office rather than a democrat any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Pedophiles only screw kids while Democrats screw everyone.”
Anyone who supports children would never put these words on paper, let alone on-line.

Nope. Not after what the author said about pedophilia. Seriously, WTF were you thinking?

I'd give it a zero if that was an option.

Take a chance on life.

Children of the Flower Power in an amazingly written book that you would want to curl up with if you're seeking for a funny, adventurous, unique night. Maybe I'm understating things, Children of the Flower Power had definitely changed my perceptions in so many things! It's just that, I never had so much fun reading than I did with this. This book covers from love to friendship, to life and family, and maybe a bit of stubborness.

I want to join the Children of the Flower Powe

This was a great read. You become the characters and feel their laughter and loving. It is beautifully written and captures you, the moment you start to read it. It is a book that can not be put down becuase you too are or the journey that the Children of the Flower Power take. A story of love and finding yourself and making dreams come true.

It plot story is amazing, and characters is great, i enjoyed this book
I think I'm bias in a way because the only reason I read this book was because it had a lot 1960s referces and I love the 60's or the late 1960s
