Just like you can't stop the whispers of your heart.
When Fflur's parents' divorce, she has to find her place in not only her new family, but also the world. Her mother's deception and secret life cuts deep. Deep enough for Fflur to taste the bitterness of hate. But her connection to a boy that may or may not become her new stepbrother could well cause the deepest hurt of all. I'm Fflur - Flower to everyone who knows me - and this is the story of broken homes, shattered hearts, and stolen dreams.
It's the story of weeds and wishes , and the definition of a flower.
- It's a story of someone under the age of 25. YA and me are a no.
- It's a story that is going to have some pretty heavy angst. No hearts and rainbow unicorns, and I'm out.
But what if I get off the high horse of self imposed pickiness and actually gave the book a chance? Seriously, didn't I JUST complain about insta-love haters in a earlier blog post? Now, in full disclosure, I did beta read the story, and Ms. Carter gave me the opportunity to say no. Yet, I decided to take a chance on this awkward old soul who is the center of probably the most wonderful story that will grace your heart and mind. My earlier initial thoughts were radically changed:
- It's a story of a girl trying to understand her world after it all comes apart. How it molds and shapes her as the reader experiences her life in coming of age.
- It's a story that will evoke a lot of feelings as you read: anger, shock, sympathy, loss, understanding and most of all great love.
