Description

Something--some power--is blooming inside Laurel. She can use flowers to do things. Like bringing back lost memories. Or helping her friends ace tests. Or making people fall in love. Laurel suspects her newfound ability has something to do with an ancient family secret, one that her mother meant to share with Laurel when the time was right. But then time ran out. Clues and signs and secret messages seem to be all around Laurel at Avondale School, where her mother had also boarded as a student. Can Laurel piece everything together quickly enough to control her power, which is growing more potent every day? Or will she set the stage for the most lovestruck, infamous prom in the history of the school?show more

Our customer reviews

Laurel is starting over at a new school after her mom's death. She's attending her mom's alma mater, Avondale Prep School, and she's finding that the school holds more and more keys to her past. It all starts with a speech on the language of flowers in her English class. When Laurel gives the bouquet she made to her English teacher and soon after Ms. Spenser finds love, Laurel starts to discover she has a gift with flowers. When rumors start to fly about Laurel's gift, all the girls want them, especially before prom. Being a matchmaker isn't easy, and Laurel has a lot to discover about the language of flowers. FORGET-HER-NOTS is a light, refreshing read. It incorporates magic without being over the top, and I finished the book believing in the language of flowers. I know I won't be looking at flowers the same way! The story takes a bit to pick up, but once it does, it's a fun read. Laurel and her friends are fun to read about - Avondale Prep School sounds like such a fun place, I wish I could visit. Some of the characters weren't completely fleshed out - I had a hard time keeping track of the numerous girls that were mentioned. But Laurel and her teachers were great to read about, and I loved that Laurel got along with her teachers and had great relationships with them. FORGET-HER-NOTS does a great job of giving a nod to classics such as ANNE OF GREEN GABLES and THE SECRET GARDEN. This story has the same warm fuzzy feel of those books, and Laurel is definitely a kindred spirit.show more
