Flower Power 2 Friendship Rules
The theme of Flower Power 2 Friendship Rules is quality friendship, as seen through the activities of the three friends. The empathy and growth of understanding demonstrated by the characters as they deal with their differences and problems reveal the importance of commonalities among people of diverse backgrounds. Through their struggles and growth, they become less judgmental and more understanding. The novel is inspiring. Author Judy Lindquist's own empathy and understanding of the hearts and minds and needs of this age group is strong and imparts a strong message of hope.
