I received this ebook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. And the thought about the story is my honest opinion.
I don't know how to tell you about my taste. I love reading all children or middle grade books. So, that was the reason this book was choosen by me. Needless to think twice to choose this, becasue after reading the excerpt, I tought, it would be a good story about the future. Okay, first of all, I want you to know that, this book is good for children to help them understand about how important the seed and plants for ourlives. This book stimulate children to think, what if the world that we are living don't have any food such as vegetable, rice, fruits and any foods that we already know? What if this world only have one artificial food like medicine?
This is a story about the future.....
Two kids, two bikes, and an idea they can change their world.
It's 2077. There's no apocalypse, but some things are different. Things like the weather, the internet, and food. In twelve-year-old Clare's world, blueberry is just a flavor and apples are found only in fairy tales.
Then one day Clare meets a woman who teaches her about seeds and real food. Ana tempts Clare with the notion that food exists other than the square packaged food she has always known. With Ana's guidance, Clare and her friends learn about seeds and gardening despite suspicions that such actions are illegal.
When the authorities discover the children's forbidden tomato plant and arrest their mother, Clare and her brother flee. Clare has heard of a place called "The Garden State," and with their bikes, a little money, and backpacks, the children begin a lonely cross-country journey that tests them both physically and spiritually. Will they succeed in their quest to find a place of food freedom? And can they, only children, help change the world?

P.E.R.F.E.C.T !! A dystopian novel, full of mystery, adventure and sacrifice. What is unique thing about this, the characters are teens!! No need romance to make the adventure more interest. What you need is to follow their trace using their bike to go to a safe place for them to grow their plant. The saddest thing, when they have to protect all those seeds from GRIM. What a brilliant way to educate teens how to protect nature for the best future.
I found the beginning of the story a little slow. The entire concept of the Seed Savers is the reason why I was curious about this book. This book and its premise are (pardon me) food for thought that everyone should consider. And everyone, of whatever age, would do well to ask themselves where their food comes from--and in the case of the vast bulk of processed foods in our stores, what it might be made of.
