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.
