So if you haven’t already done so you probably want to click here and get right to it–download the Seed Savers box set for a mere 99 cents before it jumps back up to the still-very-good-price of $5.99. The box set contains the first three novels in this exciting and thought-provoking series written for kids but engaging for adults as well. As C.S. Lewis said,
“No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally—and often far more—worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.”
Then after you’re done with that, and thinking of all the money you’ve saved (about $11 if you consider each book is normally $3.99), you should probably go here and get the newest novel, Keeper. Then why not round it out with the book of short stories and poems (The Lunchroom) and the Christmas short story featuring Lily and Arturo; tis the season. Just sayin’.
Here’s what people are saying about Treasure, Lily, Heirloom, and Keeper:
Sandy Smith’s Seed Saver books are great reads. Seed Saver books have something for everyone: diverse characters, themes of empowerment, rising revolution, and even a little romance.
The first 3 Seed Savers books are great! My kids and I have all enjoyed reading them and are looking forward to more! They are fun and exciting books that get you thinking about the future of gardening and ‘real food.’ We always give this set to friends as birthday gifts.
I stayed up late into the night reading with a flashlight, until I couldn’t keep my eyes open any more. The moment I woke up the next morning, I picked up right where I’d left off the night before. Reading about Lily’s life in the bunker with her father, was so intense at some parts that I was actually hopping around my living room I was so nervous for her.
Definitely worth it. This is a series that has teenagers fighting against what is wrong in our society. You will find themes about friendships, family, and standing up for what you believe.
As you read the book you can see parallels between this book and the real world, and they are easy to spot. It’s a book, that while fiction, definitely leaves you saying “hmm” by the end of it.
Go ahead. Treat yourself. It’s the holidays. And when you’re finished reading, let me know what you think.
