Plotting the Stars 2: Seagarden

Michelle A. Barry

Perfectly poised for paperback. In the second book in the searing STEAM-inspired Plotting the Stars middle grade series, Myra enrolls in an interplanetary academy exchange program to dig up more about the government's many conspiracies, but instead uproots even darker secrets that could drown everything she's grown to trust. Perfect for fans of The City of Ember and Divergent.

Revolution is watered with sweat and tears.

It's Myra Hodger's second year at the elite Scientific Lunar Academy of Magic. Her days of faking Number Whisper magic are over, and she has friends she can trust with the secret of her Botan abilities. But that doesn't mean she's through pretending to be someone she's not. Without the incredible Moongarden, she feels like she's losing herself just when she found the thing that made her feel whole.

With the ongoing interplanetary food crisis intensifying, and a new clue about what really happened to the banished Botans, all routes seem to point to Venus, and an exchange program at an academy there might provide Myra and her friends the cover they need to unearth the
answers they seek.

Or it might widen the cracks already forming among them, releasing a flood of consequences that could wash away all they've worked so hard
to grow.

The second book in the Plotting the Stars series, Seagarden blossoms with unexpected twists and heartbreaking revelations, underpinned by climate change warnings and a determination to fight against the status quo.
