Flower Picker follows the coming-of-age of thirteen-year-old Amelia, who is greatly influenced by three of her neighborhood friends as well as her best friend, Tony West. The story follows the gang through their adventures, mischievous escapades, and challenging times. Through it all, Amelia learns people aren't always who she thinks they are, she can't change someone who doesn't want to be changed, and that sometimes she has to move on even though what she wants more than anything else in the world is to stay.

Review:

A wonderfully well written book by an extremely intelligent young lady. To see her grow from babe to youth from want to can do. Growing up with contemporary heroes revealing timeless truth, Olivia has written a stopping place to rest, recover, and reflect. Extremely well done. --Larry Baker, Sr. Chairman of The Board of Baker Companies

Amelia meets each day with whole-hearted energy bent on adventure. This seemingly modern-day boxcar child causes us to appreciate along with her the beauty in nature and the excitement of exploring her very own Neverland. Our hearts break with Amelia's as she adjusts and grows through painful moments and misunderstandings with neighborhood friends. Both touching and teaching, Flower Picker can be instrumental in reminding young people of the importance of guarding their hearts. --Blanche Mills, home-school mom and mother of eight

In this book Olivia Spallino tells a beautifully vivid and descriptive story of the life of a sweet southern girl growing up in south Louisiana. There are tales of laughter brought on by dreams and imagination of a little girl as well as tales of sorrow brought on by life s inevitable disappointments. Each one is very intriguing and you ll love every moment of it! --Jacob Aranza, Sr. Pastor at Our Savior's Church in Lafayette, Louisiana, and best-selling author
