Customer Review - The Boy Who Grew Flowers

The Boy Who Grew Flowers
by Jen Wojtowicz [jP Wojtowicz]

This was a charming little book about a boy who lived up in the mountains with his odd family. I say odd because his uncle tamed wild snakes and his brothers where shape shifters. His mom even used a bowling bag as a purse! Now Rink, didn't have any of those strange talents but by all means he wasn't normal either. His talent was that during every full moon he sprouted flowers all over his body. He met a girl at school who's left leg was a whole inch shorter that her right one. Rink liked this girl so much that he went home and took some of his uncles snakes left over skin and made shoes and the left foot had a heel one whole inch taller that the right one. He presented the shoes to her and she loved them, as they danced they told each other about their families. At last Rink told the girl about how he sprouted flowers every full moon. Instead of being grossed out like he thought, she laughed and liked him even more. Towards the end of the book, it stated that the two have been married for 25 years and had 7 kids. Rink has been making the girls shoes ever since. -- review submitted by Whitney L. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
