Book Buzz - "Keeper" and "Seed Savers"
Keeper: "Keeper, the fourth book of the Seed Saves series opens in three different locations: Canada, North Carolina and Washington DC. The storylines converge in Portland, Oregon, where government misdeeds are exposed and the seeds of revolution are planted. Lily learns the lesson of the hummingbird: to do whatever we can, no matter how big the task. ~
Keeper: "I loved the intertwining stories of all the characters ... but as usual, the author leaves us wanting more." ~
Seed Savers: "A creative, engaging, well written book series, that is filled with action, and a lot of truth as it touches the very real issue of preserving seeds from Greedy Corporate Seed Monopoly and understanding the importance of knowing how to grow our own healthy food. This book series is AWESOME!!!!!"- Rachel Parent, Teen Founder of Kids Right to Know
Seed Savers: "This series fills the void for younger-audience dystopians." ~ Book Lover, Goodreads Librarian
Seed Savers: "Smith’s Seed Saver books are great reads for young people on many levels. The action is packed with secret acts of civil disobedience, escape from evil GRIM thugs and independent cross-country treks. Plus, teens will both recognize and learn about issues surrounding food sources. Seed Saver books have something for everyone: diverse characters, themes of empowerment, revolution, and even a little romance." ~ former teacher and school administrator
