In a futuristic U.S.A. where gardening is illegal, siblings Clare and Dante have escaped to Canada and are living with a host family, enjoying farm life and learning to grow their own food. Attending Garden Guardian class, they meet other refugees and unearth the history of how they lost their choices about food.
Their friend Lily continues the quest to find her father, a former leader in the Seed Savers movement who was arrested and jailed before she was born. Along the way she meets a host of interesting characters and more surprisingly, herself.
In a future where gardening is illegal and corporations decide what people eat, thirteen-year-old Lily defies the status quo by planting the banned seeds entrusted to her by friends--friends who have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
In this second book of the Seed Savers Series, Lily sets out to discover what happened to her missing friends, unearthing a disturbing secret from her own past.
In a future where growing your own food is against the law, three young friends risk their safety by studying the illegal subject of gardening. The children's mentor, an elderly acquaintance named Ana, entices the children with her description of the food she knew as a child--food unlike the square, processed, packaged food they have always known. Constantly watching, however, is GRIM, the government agency that controls the nation's food source and keeps in check all potential troublemakers.
When Clare and Dante return home one day to find their tomato plant seized, and their mother jailed, they bolt, leaving behind Lily and Ana. Clare has heard of a place called "The Garden State," and with their bikes, a little money, and backpacks, the children begin a lonely cross-country journey that tests them both physically and spiritually. Will they succeed in their quest to find a place of food freedom? And can they, only children, help change the world?
