This "coming of age" novel was well written but that's the only good thing I can say about it. I think that I'm too old for this type of book. Thea, the main character, annoyed me for the decisions she made as did her mother and father. Because the decisions didn't seem right and the story flowed from them, I had trouble with liking the book. At one point, I almost closed the book for good. The book has gotten good reviews though so if you like this kind of book you should read it.

At first I couldn't put down this book but a little over half way through, the main character, Victoria, started to annoy me with her inability to grow up and have a relationship. After I finished the book and read an interview with the author, I realized that attachment disorder is a very real thing and that perhaps there are people who struggle like Victoria does. This is worth a read, as learning about what flowers mean is a side benefit.

One reviewer calls this book whimsical and I agree. It's quite a creative story line and brings in a lot of reference to historical woman figures of the creative arts. The House at the End of Hope Street is a temporary refuge for women who have lost their way and gives one food for thought.

This is Game of Thrones for teens. If you like GOT, but wouldn't mind it if it was a little bit less graphic, this is your book. There are some seriously cheesey romantic bits, but overall this was a great, fun read. Oh, and there's not a ton of magic in it if that concerns you, but it does follow the typical fantasy convention of everyone's name being different, but familiar like Aron. Lots of good action and some killer death scenes.
