Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A vacant lot, rat-infested and filled with garbage, looked like no place for a garden. Especially to a neighborhood of strangers where no one seems to care. Until one day, a young girl clears a small space and digs into the hard-packed soil to plant her precious bean seeds. Suddenly, the soil holds promise: To Curtis, who believes he can win back Lateesha's heart with a harvest of tomatoes; to Virgil's dad, who sees a fortune to be made from growing lettuce; and even to Maricela, sixteen and pregnant, wishing she were dead.

Thirteen very different voices — old, young, Haitian, Hispanic, tough, haunted, and hopeful — tell one amazing story about a garden that transforms a neighborhood.

Chosen as a state and citywide read in communities across the country:

Vermont

Racine, WI

Tampa, FL

Newburgh, NY

Boca Raton, FL

Synopsis:

A determined young girl plants six bean seeds in a trash-filled lot in Cleveland and something truly magnificent grows. Thirteen different voices come together to tell one amazing story about a vacant lot that transforms a neighborhood. Illustrations.
