it was ok

I wasn't expecting chic lit when I bought this based on an Entertainment Weekly review. Even as chick lit, it's weak. I have enjoyed shopaholic novels and Bridget Jones, but this heroine is weak the people around her are insulting and degrading, and then she continually proves them right! I'm not a stickler for likeable characters, but this is just going too far. I almost want her to fail just because she isn't learning anything and doesn't seem to deserve everything that is promised to the person who finds the 9 flowers. The actual flower information is really interesting though. I think the idea could have been great if the characters were better. Just to be completely fair, I will say I'm not done reading it yet.
