Forget Her Nots by Amy Brecount White

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Genre: Contemporary

Release Date: 3/2/2010

About the Book: Laurel is starting over at a new school after mom’s death. She’s attending her mom’s alma mater Avondale Prep School and she’s finding the school holds more and more keys to her past.

It all starts with a speech on the language of flowers in her English class. When Laurel gives the bouquet she made to her English teacher and soon after Ms. Spenser finds love, Laurel starts to discover she has a gift with flowers. When rumors start to fly about Laurel’s gift with flowers, all the girls want them, especially before prom.

Being a matchmaker isn’t easy and Laurel has a lot to discover about the language of flowers.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Forget Her Nots is a light refreshing read. It incorporates magic without being over the top and I finished the book believing in the language of flowers. I know I won’t be looking at flowers the same way!

The story takes a bit to pick up, but once it does, it’s a fun read. Laurel and her friends are fun to read about-Avondale Prep School sounds like such a fun place, I wish I could visit. Some of the characters weren’t completely fleshed out-I had a hard time keeping track of the numerous girls that were mentioned. But Laurel and her teachers were great to read about-I loved that Laurel got along with her teachers and had great relationships with them.

Forget Her Nots does a great job of giving a nod to classics such as Anne of Green Gables and The Secret Garden. Forget Her Nots has the same warm fuzzy feel of these books and Laurel is definitely a kindred spirit.

  7. Very excited about this one. I'm glad that the magic isn't too over-the-top. I'm feeling a bit burned out on paranormal still.
