S. Smith in her new book, “treasure bookcoverTreasure” Book One in the Seed Savers series published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform gives us a fast-paced future thriller.

From the back cover: 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 Ana, who teaches her about seeds and real food, 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?

It is the future and we didn’t blow ourselves up, were taken over by intelligent apes or under control of a one-world leader instead we did something even worse. We have prohibited growing our own fruits and vegetables. The Green Resource Investigation Machine (GRIM) is the corporation in charge of policing the distribution and use of seeds. In fact, GRIM has been so effective in its job that even the language around seeds, planting, and gardening has been erased from the collective memory of society. However, there are those who remember the past and make it their mission to ensure it’s not forgotten, they are part of a secret group known as The Seed Savers. Their work is dangerous, but if they succeed children can once again experience the delicious tastes and healthy benefits of homegrown unprocessed food. Ms. Smith has provided us with a highly complicated plot. Clare, Dante, and Lily are interesting characters that develop and become more interesting as the story goes on. “Treasure” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Ms. Smith has provided us with a fairly exciting book and well worth the read.
