Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

It was just rain.

But after the downpour, odd black plants begin to shoot up.

Suddenly-

They. Are. Everywhere.

They take over fields and twine around houses. They bloom and throw off toxic pollen-and feed.

Strangely, Anaya, Petra and Seth, three Salt Spring Island teens, seem immune. What's their connection? What's their secret? A week ago, they wouldn't have thought they had one.

But they'd better figure it out fast-the invasion has already begun.

Review Quote*"The perfect book right now for young readers searching for hope, strength, inspiration - and just a little horticultural havoc."
Review Quote*"A phenomenal kickoff to an enthralling trilogy. . . . An edge-of-your-seat, apocalyptic alien plants versus heroic hybrid teens adventure."
Review Quote*"Kenneth Oppel has written a thriller so exciting that the pages might well have been printed with adrenaline. . . . So propulsive that some readers may find themselves using one hand to cover the paragraphs they haven't read yet, to keep their devouring eyes from jumping ahead."
Review Quote*"Absolutely riveting . . . Superb storytelling, great characters and an environmental crisis will completely captivate young readers."
Review Quote*"A terrifying non-stop thriller."
Review Quote*"Oppel steadily adds new horrors, potently escalating the story's pace, stakes, and anxiety."
Review Quote*"A thrilling alien-invasion novel based on a chillingly nefarious premise." 
Review Quote*"Bloom is a lightning-paced adventure that grabs hold of you and doesn't let go. This book is ridiculously fun … and by ‘fun' I mean terrifying!"
