For a limited time, only 1.99! Ten-year-old ElizabethAnn never intends to leave the safety of No Oaks’ suburban police state, but when her eccentric grandmother peels around the corner in a pimped-out hot rod and shouts that the men are coming to put her in “a home,” ElizabethAnn and Grandma dive through a badger hole into the forested dystopia of Bumblegreen, seeking a real home.
In this “wildly imaginative, occasionally haunting fantasy anchored by strong, evolving female characters,” (Kirkus Reviews) persnickety ElizabethAnn must solve the problem of Bumblegreen’s deadly pandemic lest she and Grandma be considered the cause of it. Joining forces with a reluctant teenaged queen and an ancient, genderless sorcerer, ElizabethAnn and Grandma strive to prove themselves worthy of Bumblegreen. Meanwhile, a rampant disease turns contented animals into neurotic people in this book New York Times best-selling author John Berendt called “freewheeling imagination.”
This whimsical meditation on the concept of home asks you, dear reader: will magic avenge our heroine? Will technology save her? Or will ElizabethAnn and her motley gang of malcontents be too late to repair the beautiful, mysterious, and troubled land of Bumblegreen?
