"It's only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away." —Bee Gees
I wanted to like this book. I really liked the idea of communicating through flowers. I thought this was going to be a quiet, melancholic story. Instead it was raw and painful and violent.
The main character, Victoria Jones, reminded me a bit of Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books. But while I pitied Lisbeth and was mildly curious about her, I pitied Victoria but did not like her.
2.5 stars thanks to the writing and the wonderful little flower dictionary at the end of the book. No thanks to Victoria.
