My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Growing up with her parents, Laurel was always homeschooled until sophomore year, the year her parents moved to Cresecent City to open a dream book store and forces Laurel into a public school. There she meets and befriends David. One day and for a week or so, Laurel finds a zitlike bump on her back which grows and grows everyday until it became the size of a base ball then bursted into a blossom. Stressing and having trouble with the secret on her back, she turns to David and eventually discovers she is somewhat a plant with real plant cells. For a while, Laurel would hide her petals under her clothes. After a visit to the forest behind her old home, and getting caught with her petals untied and spread out, she meets Tamani and there learns a bit about herself and why there is a blossom on her back. She learns not only is she not human, she is also a Fall Fairy that is the second most magical fairies in the fae world. After she returns, her and David experiments on herself from blood drops, to heartbeats and petal samples, Tamani's words aren't lies after all.
