A beautifully written, incredibly original and wickedly funny novel for readers of 10 and older - BLOOM is for everyone who has ever felt like they didn't fit in, and for anyone who has ever wanted a little more colour and wildness in their lives...

"A debut set in a wacky garden centre"

Skinner’s writing feels fresh and fun and, although there is a little hectoring about the need for green space and the evils of development, the story, rather than being strangled by Japanese knotweed, grows from strength to strength.
