Forget-Her-Nots - Amy Brecount White I hate to say this but I did not like Forget-Her-Nots. For some reason I never got into the story and I found myself reading the book just to get it over with. From the reviews I have read, I seem to be the only one who didn't completely enjoy Amy Brecount White's debut novel.Laurel Whelan loves flowers. She always helped her mom in her garden and now that her mom is gone, she makes do with the flowers at her school, Avondale. Not only is she good with flowers, she seems to make magic with them. When word gets around school about her magic flowers, everybody wants them. Will Laurel use her gift wisely or will it go to her head?I guess, for starters, I didn't particularly like Laurel. She didn't seem to have much of a personality. She didn't make many friends and the ones that she did make, she ignored a lot of the time. Laurel was kind of obsessed with flowers and I have never really been into flowers so I couldn't relate. She annoyed me most of the book.The plot wasn't bad but I didn't like the characters enough to care much about the rest of the book. I couldn't get into the story so I gave up with it. It had some good things, like the writing, but it wasn't a book for me.Overall, I didn't like Forget-Her-Nots but that doesn't mean other people won't. If it sounds like something you would like, give it a shot. I still plan on reading whatever else Amy Brecount White writes in the future! =]
