Wallflower in Bloom by Claire Cook


Reviewed by Charlotte

Deidre Griffin has a life many dream of, flying around the world being a personal assistant to her high maintenance New Age Guru Brother, Tag.  This role seems to make her the wallflower of the family.  Deidre decides to use Tag’s millions of online followers to get her a spot on Dancing with the Stars.  Maybe stepping in front of the camera will help her mentally and physically earning her 15 minutes of fame.

Wallflower in bloom is a perfect summer read, although I read it in the fall and it is still perfect.  Starting with the title, showing there is hope for a wallflower to come into her own.  Most of us either know or are a wallflower, someone who goes out but stays in the shadows.  I loved watching Deidre come out of the shadows and bloom into a self ensured, non-pushover woman.

The “chiasmus” at the beginning of each chapter were great.  They gave a little insight into what was coming in the chapter and often made me smile and nod my head.  If you don’t know what a “chiasmus” is you definitely will by the end of the book.

I loved that this was a story of family and that even when someone seemingly changes the game plan they still come together and support each other wanting each other to succeed.

Whether a Dancing with the Stars fan or not everyone will love this book.  Claire Cook’s great sense of humor shines through.  If you have a family that sometimes drives you crazy you will definitely relate.
Actually, anyone who is looking to read a great chic-lit book will love Wallflower in Bloom.
