About the book

Seventeen-year-old Ming and twenty-four-year-old Yan have very little in common: Ming, innocent and preoccupied, lives in her own world of books, music and imagination; Yan is, by contrast, sexy but cynical, beautiful but wild. She uses her looks to get what she wants from the many men in her life.

When the two girls meet and become best friends, Mings world is changed forever. She is attracted to Yans free-spirit, while Yan yearns for the kind of stability Mings seriousness can bring. But their differences in upbringing and ideologies ultimately drive them apart, leaving each to face her own dark secret alone.

February Flowers is an insightful meditation on forbidden love, loss and redemption, and how a background shapes a life.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
