Seed Savers-Keeper

Sandra Smith

"Deftly crafted and thoroughly entertaining." --Midwest Book Review

Beginning in a Pacific Islander village of climate refugees hidden deep in the Smoky Mountains and ending in an underground bunker in Portland's Forest Park, Keeper is the fast-paced fourth installment in the Seed Savers series.

In Keeper, GRIM appears to be crumbling only to be replaced by FRND (the Food Resources & Nutrition Department), a corporate-sponsored program with a more friendly public face. The Seed Savers Movement is on the verge of splintering as James Gardener's fugitive status is viewed by some as a liability, while others don't trust the mysterious JALIL. Trinia Nelson is bent on finding James and will stop at nothing. Earth Day parades turn into protests and someone is leaking classified government documents.

Meanwhile, Lily, Clare, and Dante, shut up in the bunker, become restless and begin sneaking out. In the park, they run into Rose, an acquaintance from summer tutoring. Will their desire to rekindle the friendship lead to forgiveness, or will it end in betrayal?

Praise for this book

"More and more, the Seed Savers series is resembling the fast-paced action political drama of the Divergent series - without the killing, and with the added fun of things like dandelion syrup being discussed. This book is a keeper! I'm looking forward to the day Smith gets a movie or mini-series deal. Better yet, a Netflix original." Andi Klemm, Anakalian Whims blog

"Rich in detail and extremely well-imagined politics." Jemima Pett, author of The Princelings of the East trilogy

"A well-written story, and one I whole-heartedly recommend!" Erik Weibel, This Kid Reviews Books

"In Seed Savers-Keeper, Lily learns the lesson of the hummingbird: to do whatever we can, no matter how big the task." Joyce Yoder, former educator, Salem-Keizer Schools
