I’m so excited! The release date for Treasure is one week away . . . June 11.
But, wait, isn’t Treasure the first book in the Seed Savers series? Yes, it is. All of the Seed Savers books are being polished up with new covers and new back matter and being relaunched with Flying Books House.
If you are new to the series, here’s the description for Treasure:
It’s 2077. There’s no apocalypse, but some things are different. Things like the weather, the internet, and food. In twelve-year-old Clare’s world, blueberry is just a flavor, and apples are found only in fairy tales.
One day, Clare meets an older woman named Ana who teaches her about seeds and real food. Ana tempts Clare with the notion that food exists other than the square, packaged food she has always known.
With Ana’s guidance, Clare and her friends learn about seeds and gardening despite suspicions that such actions are illegal.
When the authorities discover the children’s forbidden tomato plant and arrest their mother, Clare and her brother flee. 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?
