Author Vanessa Diffenbaugh's debut novel is the story of a foster girl, Victoria, making her way in the world once she is out of the foster care system. The story is about Victoria's relationships -- both when she is a young woman and as a child, and how she communicates with others through the Victorian language of flowers. In Victorian times, different flowers had different meanings, and in fact, the book even includes a glossary of flowers and their meanings.
I have been recommending this book to everyone I know! I could not put it down, and finished it in one day.
