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.

This is my fave book...ever!! And i am a kid
Seedfolk is just awful
I just cannot express my anger at my teachers deciding that i had to read this garbage so i use bought in on i tunes to listen to so i could still do other things instead of be tortured by this attempt at literature.
I love this book! We are reading this book in Language Arts this year and I absoultely LOVE it. It is so inspiring, funny, and many connections can be made by many people. I completely recommend reading this book.
