I love stories about family dynamics shifting from small, innocuous choices, but once past the initial setup, I didn't care. To some degree I don't think I was supposed to like the main characters, but was completely indifferent to them. The last chapter was amazing, though (of course, it was focused on a side character).

Cinfhen I have this ARC but it‘s not calling to me...your review is helpful 1y
ferskner @Cinfhen I also don't love literary fiction all the time, so I may not be the best reader for this. It's not bad writing at all, just not very interesting to me. 1y
Cinfhen I generally like literary fiction but something was off with this book😜 1y

"My mission is to make you aware of exactly how important plants are; in fact, I am obsessed with this idea. I want to tell you all about them and what they do for us, how crucial they are for our survival, and why we should save them."

Returned a book to the library & this one grabbed me with its gorgeous cover, clever title & subject matter. Magdalena's #purpose is to protect plants from extinction & teach the world about them.?

DebinHawaii Also he has a blurb from Jane Goodall 😍and I think it will be my pick for #Booked2018 Reading Challenge's #FlowersOrSwordOnCover 🌺 2y

DebinHawaii @emilyhaldi I know! Even under the library plastic it's just so striking. And I love when I'm the first person to check out a book.🤗💚 2y
