Synopsis: Now! she thought. Her right hand seemed to lift of its own and reach toward the bouquet. "Bright cut flowers," she whispered, "Leaves of green, bring about what I have seen." When the last word left her tongue, her whole body tingles and hummed, as if a note was reverberating deeply inside her.
Something-some power-is blooming inside Laurel. She can use flowers to do things. Like bringing back lost memories. Or helping her friends ace tests. Or making people fall in love.
Laurel suspects her newfound ability has something to do with an ancient family secret, one that her mother meant to share with Laurel when the time was right. But then time ran out.
Clues and signs and secret messages seem to be all around Laurel at Avondale School, where her mother had also boarded as a student. Can Laurel piece everything together quickly enough to control her power, which is growing more potent every day? Or will she set the stage for the most lovestruck, infamous prom in the history of the school?
