Now thats true love!

The Boy Who Grew Flowers by Jen Wojtwicz, published by Barefoot Books, is a fabulous read for boys and girls a like. One part story of mutants, one part story of a shy boy at school, one part love story. What is there not to like?

Rink is an unusual boy from an unusual family, his uncle is awfully friendly with rattle snakes, his brother and cousins are shapeshifters, but Rink has a super special gift. On a full moon, or when he is especially happy he sprouts flowers from his head! Thats not exactly a super power I have thought about but seriously how weird but strangely cool would that be? I mean all you have to do is cut your hair every full moon and you'd have your own personal flower arrangement all the time!

The kids at school don't think Rink's family is soo cool. Actually they shun him because of his "weird family". When a new girl, Angelina, shows up in class she doesn't think Rink is all that weird at all. Angelina herself though instantlly popular has one leg that is shorter than the other. With Rink its love at first sight and when he finds out about the school dance coming up he is bound and deterimine to make her a pair of shoes that will allow her to stand up strait and be able to dance!
Little does Rink know that Angelina and him have more in common than he thinks, and their new friendship will turn out to be so much more.

You can't help to smile after reading it and it has enough mutant power to keep the boys interested and what little girl could resist a love story?
