Many moons ago, it seems like forever now, S. Smith sent me a copy of Seed Savers, the first of her young adult series set in an America where growing your own food has become illegal. Children were being taught about seeds and produce gardens in whispers; collecting, saving, and planting seeds a prison-worthy offense.

The story couldn’t have come at a better time for me. It was the summer of 2012, I had a small daughter at home, my husband was out of work, and I had just started spending more time and care actively growing more of our groceries. On top of that, I was beginning to learn how to forage and was focusing my daughter’s future education on as much regarding sustainability and self-sufficiency as possible. I wanted taking care of ourselves to come as naturally as literature does for me. I wanted finding edible grapes in the forest to be as simple as knowing that 2+2 = 4. Then Seed Savers happened and it felt like the stars had begun to align.

Several books later (Seed Savers, Heirloom, and Lily), we finally have the fourth installment of S. Smith’s world. The girls, Lily and Clare, have done a lot of growing up. Siblings Dante and Clare have received a lot more education during their stay in Canada. Rose is being indoctrinated… bad guys are getting closer and closer to turning everything upside down as rebels have begun starting riots in the street. Soon, all four kids find themselves in Portland, Oregon, where Seed Savers headquarters has been stationed under a forested park in the city for years.

More and more, the 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.

Having been blown away by Treasure, Lily and Heirloom, Keeper had a lot to live up to. There is a change of pace as we enter this one, and I struggled to remember who Trinia and Rose were - I certainly didn't like what was going on with them. Then the scene changed to Lily, and then to Clare and Dante, and I felt on more familiar ground. That ground was soon swept away as changes upset their lives and locations, with the story shifting from one to the other and feeding in information about the wider world. It builds a big picture which is rich in detail and extremely well imagined politics, based largely on interpolation of what is happening NOW in agriculture and governance. Having worked in sustainability research until recently, I can say this really is a valid scenario of the path we are on, and my only concern is that the books are set too far in the future.

In a way this book seems to move out of Middle Grade territory into full-blown dystopia. But older Middle Graders read the Hunger Games and similar YA works, and those already engaged with the series will enjoy the developments, and the combination of mistakes and danger that our brave, sometimes foolhardy, protagonists engage in. It ends on more of a cliffhanger than the others, although revelations near the end give a tantalising view of the next book. I can't wait!

I was priviledged to read an advance copy of this book, and it is great! If you have read the first three books in this series and have been waiting for Keeper, it does not disappoint--it is well worth the wait!

There is much excitement in this book--tension is escalating--and plenty of time with the characters we've grown to know and love. I am looking forward to the next book and am actually sad thinking that the story might soon end. That's how it is with really good books--we always wish there was more.

Synopsis- Keeper is the fourth book in the Seed Savers series. The series starts off in a world where government controlled food processing in the law and it is illegal to grow your own food. The story centers on siblings Clare and Dante and their friend Lily who all seek ways to learn about growing their own food and trying to save a mislead world. Lily had found her dad, who just so happened to be the leader of the Seed Savers Resistance. They were hiding in the Smoky Mountains, waiting to be able to visit Seed Savers Headquarters. Clare and Dante are finishing up their training in Canada and plan on returning to their mother. With GRIM at the verge of falling, and Seed Savers getting into government positions, it looks like the US may be heading for a change. But when someone starts leaking federal information, the citizens start rioting, and it looks as if all of the work of the Seed Savers is for naught.

What I Thought- The next book in the Seed Savers series is here! It is a well-written story, and one I whole-heartedly recommend. Just one thing I would like to say – the first chapter of the book was somewhat confusing, as it didn’t refresh the previous book much, but I think the reader can catch on and enjoy the story. From the end of book 3 and into book 4, there is a lot of tension building, and Ms. Smith does a great job of escalating the story while keeping it believable. I like the fact that the characters (and the reader by extension) are uncovering/figuring out the conspiracy as the story goes along. This keeps you involved in the story. Ms. Smith has a great writing style that has a way of making it all seem real and possible. Plus it ties into some of the things going on in the world today, which kind of makes it a bit frightening.
