This is a story about an orphan with a knack for picking out flowers for others- and for pushing away those trying to get close to her. Victoria Jones has been through the foster care system (and then some) but she receives her best chance at being part of a family with Elizabeth. But Victoria can't let a good thing last, especially when it comes to Elizabeth's sister, who lives on a neighboring flower farm. Years later, Victoria turns 18 and begins life on her own, working at a flower shop and finds herself running into people from her past. This story touches strongly on themes of family, love, and abandonment, and is, not surprisingly, a tear-jerker towards the end. Written in the everyday speech of a surly but surprisingly reflective teen, this is a great read.
