I really enjoyed this book because it had a good meaning to it. I think that the author was trying to convey a message similar to Rachel’s Challenge. If somebody were to do something nice, everybody will join to end a bigger problem, like segregation. My favorite character was Ana because she tried to get her dad's attention by planting some seeds, but what she actually did was something much bigger, put a stop to segregation. So far my favorite activity was making aluminum can garden with Mr.Howard. After he is done displaying our beautiful works of art I am going to make my flower into a ring.
