I really enjoyed this fantasy debut from Amy Crecount White. The story was told in just the right tone and set the stage for a believable account of one girl and her ability to create magic from flowers. This book is appropriate for everyone and I think all teens and adults will enjoy it. I liked Laurel and the fact that she grew as a person, didn't let mistakes overwhelm her and developed into a good person. She makes good and bad choices and learns from everything she does. There is a nice amount of romance and the fact that the story uses the common elements of flower and plants in a unique way that is credible.
