    1. Lily lives in the United States but it is a different world than what we know. People are not allowed to grow their own food or even to own seeds or plants. The government controls all the food. Lily was sad when her friends Clare and Dante ran away to Canada. They went to Canada because they heard that you could grow your own food there. Lily still tended to the veggies the kids were all growing together in secret. She did make a new friend, named Rose. One day, she takes Rose to meet Ana, the [...]


    2. I read the first installment of Seed Savers early this last summer. I loved it. I was so excited to find a new “undiscovered” young adult author and immediately blogged about it. Illegal gardening, fresh produce, dystopian society, kids on the run… how much more exciting could it possibly get? Way more, that’s how much.With the arrival of Lily, I expected to get “the further adventures of Clare and Dante,” but what I got was much more. Lily, a side character in the first book, Treasu [...]


    3. If you haven’t read the first in the series, Treasure,you should do so first. There is gentle explanation here of the situation to date, but it is just SO much better to read them in sequence! Lily is missing her friends, and kicking around doing nothing much in her summer vacation except visiting her illegally planted seeds to see how they are faring. She makes a new friend in Rose, and like Lily, I was never sure how much she could be trusted, and whether she was a true friend or not. And th [...]


    4. Lily is shocked when her best friends Clare and Dante disappear after their mother is arrested. They’re just kids! She knows they ran away because the authorities suspected them of growing vegetables illegally. But Clare and her little brother aren’t the ones with the most to hide. Without her friends’ knowledge, Lily had started a variety of seeds in vacant lots around the city. She’s watching them grow, but doesn’t have a clue what to do with them as they ripen. She doesn’t even kn [...]


    5. **A free copy was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.**I liked this book a lot. As in Seed Savers it was a really quick read, and the little quirks I noticed in Seed Savers have all been fixed in this sequel. Lily is told in first person, which initially I had some reservations about. It's my opinion that you should probably not switch from third person to first person (Seed Savers was told in third person), but I think the story really benifitted from this switch, so I en [...]


    6. Just finished the second book in this series. I really enjoyed this, almost more than Treasures. Lily's sadness over the disapperance of her friends, followed by her discoveries of her unknown past are quite suspenseful. I got to the last page and said "NO!" I need to know what happens next. Can't wait for the next book.


    7. Lily (Seed Savers Book 2) follows up on what Clare and Dante’s friend did after Clare and Dante disappeared. As the sole member of their little Seed Savers group left, it was up to her to keep the seeds safe.Lonely for friendship she reaches out to Rose and they begin to spend time with one another. Rose is drawn into the Seed Savers group and is so excited when she discovers a drink can be made by boiling water and some leaves together.After a few twists and turns Lily has learned things abou [...]


    8. (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I felt this book worked really well as a sequel to Treasure. It was nice to see a first person POV book actually stick to one POV character though if I'm honest, I noticed at least one moment where it slipped up - 'I had no way of knowing, but' Yeah. That doesn't work in a first person book, because if the character has no way of knowing, why is it mentioned? Sorry, pet peeve there.It was good to se [...]


    9. This book continues the journey of Lily. Her friends, Clare and Dent, are on run after the GRIM, a government organization which make sure of no illegal hoarding of seeds ,and cultivation of crops and plant, raided their houses. Lily started to feel alone and desolate. She loved to learn all about seeds. She wanted to know about her friend so she went to Ana, who is a Seed-Saver, taught her and her's friend about seed and how to grow them. She wanted to learn more about seed so she persuade Ana [...]


    10. Lily, the second book in the Seed Savers series, is a great follow-up to Treasure! The premise of these books is so scary because it is something that could really happen. Seeds are no longer legal gardens, no natural food. Everything that is grown is grown for the big corporations who then turn the real food into "food-like" substances.In this book, Lily, who was left behind when Clare and Dante escaped to Canada, finds out the truth about her father. She knows she has to find the truth, and sh [...]


    11. Book 2 the seed savers lily is all about the friend who got left behind by her best friend to find answers to an unknown story. Lily is part of a small group called seed savers trying to reseed the earth of all forms of plants and help to feed the world real food again. The practice of saving seeds, planting food or growing any kind of food is highly illegal and that entire lily wants to do along with her friends that have disappeared, but she has a secret one only her and her friends know about [...]


    12. This book is something that I would read in between a series or if you are trying to get over a book hangover. I think this book is meant for a younger reader but it does develop some depth towards the end. This book contains betrayal, love, and secrets. Set in a time were the government controls all food sources, Lily tries to figure out who she can trust and what lies are true. While I did read this book without the first one, I still understood what was going on in the beginning. If you are l [...]
