Twelve year-old Ned Bixby is lonely. He’s been sent to live with relatives in England for the summer, and he’s pretty sure it’s because something is wrong with his mother.
When he discovers a box of ancient seeds with the power to grant everlasting life beneath one of the giant rocks at Stonehenge, things get more than a little weird. He finds his loyalty and morality tested by an impossible choice – get the seeds to a new hiding place and prevent a civilization-ending population explosion, or give them to one of the greedy pharmaceutical companies pursuing him, and ensure his mother gets the first of their “live forever” pills.
Mix TUCK EVERLASTING and a high-stakes race across modern-day Europe, and you get THE SEEDKEEPER’S SECRET, a 61,000-word boy-friendly middle grade adventure with series potential.
