This story starts with the birth of Lucinda Vinetrope. Lucinda is 12" high, is born from a vine, and made of 100% intelligent plant life! She is feisty, a little domineering, and a lot like a teenager and a grandma rolled into one. She also has several special feaetures. She can glow at will, a lovely shade of orange, and her light has life altering abilties. For one thing, it can gift the power of language to certain animals. For another, it may hold the secret to clean energy. Lucinda also has coded into her cellular structure, the story of her lost race. Much of this story is produced in rhyme. This makes Lucinda the Master Rhymer and Historian of her people.
Lucinda ripens on her vine, and when she snaps off her stem and steps into the world, she is horrified to discover that there are none of her kind to be found. She is in a world that makes no sense to her. How did she grow here? This world is the backyard of an 11-year-old girl by the name of Sara Umberland. Sara lost her mom to cancer two years earlier and she lives with her dad, a biological research scientist, and her teenage brother Steven. Sara is bright, inquisitive, sensitive, and often lonely. Her dad has to work late at the lab, and her brother has a life of his own. When Lucinda and Sara meet, a unique adventure begins that will alter the history of Mankind. Don't miss this highly original novel filled with humor, magic, wisdom and tears.
