I read this book to fulfil the goal read a book with a plant in the title or on the cover. it is so amazing. it made me feel so nice. like i was living the adventure myself. i don't have appropriate words to describe the story, except i really like it. (warning: it is a grown up book not suitible for those under 18)

Can't say that I really liked it but it grabbed me and kept me interested until the end - something I've had trouble finding in a book lately.
Found it similar to The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. It was a little too fantastical at the end for my taste.

I liked this book's concept though writing quality is in process... Definitely a bit like Chocolat or Like Water for Chocolate . A little Castendeda (who I normally don't like to read) and some Celestine Prophesy thrown in. I love the character surfer Kody - where is he?
