2010 book 189

Maryrose Wood's The Poison Diaries
Wood--author of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, which I adored--starts a new trilogy (based on an idea by a Duchess, for real) for teens focusing on a young girl growing up in isolation with her botanist father, who studies the medicinal uses of plants and has a locked garden full of poisonous things. When they are brought a boy who has mysterious plant-related powers, the two of course strike up an attraction. Things kind of go off the rail towards the end, and I'm not sure I really liked the way things wrapped up, even if there are two sequels in the works. B/B-.
