  • Poignant, powerful read May 18, 2014
    by Gail R

    Foster children have no place to go when they "age out"--turn 18 and are no longer eligible for system services. Many become lost souls: no family waiting with open arms or hearts to help them find a job, go to college, or even find a place to live. This is the story of one such girl, her search for a place in someone's heart, and finally the memories and people who make it possible for her to find a place to live, grow, and love in a new kind of family. Told in dream- like flashbacks and gritty images of poverty and the homeless, the book is nonetheless a romance as well as a book about parenting and a failing social system.

    The first several chapters were about a destructive and unlikeable, foul mouthed girl soon to be aged-out. Where are the flowers? As the story progresses the connection is made and becomes a very intriguing story.

    I really had to push myself to finish reading this book. It was so sad and on the dark side. It was touted as a good read, but it was not for me. It made me feel depressed just reading it.
