Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Seed is at the center of 15-year-old Pearl's life: it is the isolated family of which she is part, it is the house in which she lives, and it is the remote patch of land around that house where she sows and gathers crops for her family's sustenance. Pearl is happy at Seed. She does not often leave because according to Papa S., the leader of Pearl's family, Seed is pure and leaving risks contact with poisoned Outsiders who may taint Pearl's spiritual core. The teen knows Papa S. is truthful, but when three Outsiders unexpectedly join the family, the patriarch's word—and Pearl's entire reality—is challenged. Heathfield's debut novel is the first in a two-book series. Pearl's development over the course of the novel is realistic and relatable, and readers will become attached and even frustrated with the heroine. The smooth pacing and sophisticated yet age-appropriate style of the work lend credence to the story as it transforms the everyday activities of Seed into complex issues of physical and emotional abuse, budding self-esteem and increasing self-reliance, fear as a means of control, and belief as an expression of faith or as a means of deception. VERDICT Seed will hold readers' attention as the story's mood slowly changes and the work builds to an ultimately stunning conclusion.—Maggie Mason Smith, Clemson University R. M. Cooper Library, South Carolina

Review

'We are obsessed with Seed and its handling of the topic of a cult. It's unlike anything we've ever read before and we applaud Lisa for writing such an excellent first novel' YA Love Magazine 'Seed was intriguing and fascinating - Lisa Heathfield's debut is stunning and has left me aching for more. Do yourself a favour and do NOT pass this one up. Spellbinding and filled with mystery and deception, this is a novel that demands to be read.' Confessions of a Readaholic 'Seed will hold readers' attention as the story's mood slowly changes and the work builds to an ultimately stunning conclusion' School Library Journal
