Jordan Sun is a Junior at the Kensington-Blaine Boarding School for the Performing Arts. However, she’s just been rejected from the fall musical – for the third year running.

Also, I REALLY love flowers and if a book features flowers on the cover – I’m already intrigued. And, spring has just started, so it’s a perfect theme. So, here goes: Continue reading “Top Ten Covers That Feature Flowers (Top Ten Tuesday – 02/05/2017)”
