Flora is a girl I so wish I'd met when I was a pre-teen. She's brave, she's bold, her mother is the head of the army, her father is rather wimpy, her best friend worries more about his appearance than any girl--and Flora never for a second has a doubt that she can do anything she wants! She has adventures, she faces dangers, she thinks for herself. I am long past my teen-aged years, but I'm collecting these books in hopes of either reading them to my grandchildren or passing them along to friends with pre-teen daughters. Ah, Flora--a Girl of Spirit indeed. If you miss Harry Potter, then you must meet Flora!

Susan Wiget, July 22, 2010 (view all comments by Susan Wiget)
Flora Segunda is a hilarious, moving, whimsical, refreshing, and original young adult fantasy novel set in an alternate reality version of California, a country called Califa. Flora is so-named because the first Flora, her oldest sister, died well before she was born. Flora Segunda grows up with a sense of inferiority toward the original, golden-haired Flora. At the age of fourteen, Flora does all the domestic chores in her dysfunctional family because her father is a reclusive alcoholic and her mother is a workaholic who rarely comes home and who has banished the butler, a supernatural being meant to keep the huge mansion, Crackpot Hall, in order. Flora accidently ends up in a strange part of the house… and finally meets the butler, whom she tries to save so she doesn’t have to keep doing all the housework.

Can Flora find courage and be herself at last, or will her practice of self-negation literally lead to her end?

Flora Segunda started off pretty boring and ended very nicely. I'm actually impressed by the fact that this is the author's first book. Seems more like she wrote several books ahead of this one. Overall, this is a nice book, you should get it.
