I’ve been eying this book for quite some time, and finally had time to read it. Got through it in a week. What an engaging work of fiction that sheds light on a hidden population—the more than 400,000 children in foster care and the more than 30,000 who age out of the system each year without the support they need to become successful adults. Here’s an NPR piece on Vanessa Diffenbaugh’s debut novel ‘The Language of Flowers.’ We can also look forward to a movie.
