Wishlist Wednesday: The Gardner


A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.

The Gardner
by S.A. Bodeen
release date: 25 May 2010
Mason has never known his father, but longs to. All he has of him is a DVD of a man whose face is never seen, reading a children’s book. One day, on a whim, he plays the DVD for a group of comatose teens at the nursing home where his mother works. One of them, a beautiful girl, responds. Mason learns she is part of a horrible experiment intended to render teenagers into autotrophs — genetically engineered, self-sustaining life-forms who don’t need food or water to survive. And before he knows it, Mason is on the run with the girl, and wanted, dead or alive, by the mysterious mastermind of this gruesome plan, who is simply called the Gardener.
Will Mason be forced to destroy the thing he’s longed for most?

Why it's on my wishlist
This reminds me of a Goosebumps episode I watched where like, the step(?)dad is a monster plant or something lol. Either way, creepy and science-fictiony, perfect combo for me 8D

Never read or heard of this book, but I can tell you right now that Mason's dad is the gardener. You let me know if I'm right after you read it. :)
