Flower Children - Book Review

"Flower Children" is second book by award winning author 'Maxine Swann'. This was first published as a short story in 1997 and it had won many prizes. It was based on author's own experience growing up.

Honestly I had never heard about Maxine as we don't get to hear about many smaller authors in India. I got her book second hand from a book fair. 

I read this book a long time ago in 2013. It's a nice little book and I think this is the best format to convey a story of growing children or it wouldn't be 230 pages but 2300 pages. All stories are good but the overall story suffer because apparently these short stories were written separately and then combined to make this book. All the stories never come together as one. Every other short story would change format from Third Person to First Person. I enjoyed the book but wasn't hooked to it due to these problems. But at the end of the day its a nice little book to pass your time. After all its only very short 230 pages

My final ratings is 3.5 out of 5 stars
