The story Bloomability is about a girl named Dinnie who lives a normal life with her parents. But suddenly things change for Dinnie. She is sent of to live with her aunt and uncle who live in Switzerland. There she meets a nice boy named Gunthrie and a loudmouth girl named Lila. The three of them become good friends, until Lila goes to live with her parents because she hates the school in Switzerland. While Lila is gone, Dinnie has some problems of her own. For the winter holidays, she has to sleep in a dorm with two girls she barley knows and they talk about what boys they like. Then for Christmas, Dinnie got a pair of snow boots, ski goggles, ski poles, and a pair of skis! Worst of all, the school goes on a trip to go skiing and Dinnie doesn't even know how to ski! Then Lila comes back, but she is different, she is a lot calmer and quieter. To find out the rest of the adventures read Bloomability.
