Ellie's dad broke into the conversation, holding his hands out to the game board.

"Where are the seeds?" he had asked.

"Huh?" said Mara, giving him a very preteen look of disbelief. "This is a war game, Dad."

"Exactly," he said. "That's the way to win any war."

He leaned across the table and wagged his finger at Ellie. "You control the seeds, you control the world."

Sixteen-year-old Ellie has had to grow up quickly - her older sister has moved away to work for the ARC, her mother spends her days lost in her mind, and her father has been missing for years.

Determined to keep her promise to her father, Ellie walks between their berm house hidden in the Oregon hills to their old farmhouse in town every week to keep up the appearance that they still live there - but why?

With the help of Charlie, a handsome childhood neighbor who has moved back to town after seven years, and Ellie's best friend Hazel, Ellie sets out to piece together the mystery behind her father's disappearance.

Together they learn the power of seeds as a commodity, and just how far some are willing to go to control them.

Part thriller, part mystery, and part romance, the Seed Series examines through a not-so-distant fictionalized lens what could happen if the world continues on its current trajectory in regards to food security, food production, and the patenting of life.
