Starting as an urban mystery in an alternate, post-crash Detroit still in French territory, the story migrates into the neighboring park encampment of runaway children–a Lost Boys-esque realm where the mystical is still possible next to all-too-human brutality, grit, and mutual aid. Each group fearful of the other, they are brought together by a murder mystery, guerilla gardening, and a tenacious but wary fight for the future. Moving forward is going to take intergenerational environmental and social work. Urban/eco fantasy fans and social justice believers, unite!

Also:    -Delightfully creative names for fruits and vegetables.
            -The kid that never comes down from the tree the whole book is awesome.
            -A black stallion that arrives in the nick of time neighing in
valor and destiny before a backdrop of apocalypse and
 lightning!!!
