Read full description of the books Stay Out of the Basement:Margaret's father may be a botanist, but what he's doing in the basement suggests he may be a mad scientist.
A tall, treelike plant sighed and appeared to bend toward them, raising its tendrils as if beckoning to them, calling them back.
This book is undeniably kitschy, and then - BOOM! - the author drops some serious science into the mix: DNA, genome mapping, reproductive isolation, genetic modification and transgenics. These topics are explored in simpler terms, but they're nonetheless present:
"That's what a lot of botanists do with plants. They try to take the fruit-bearing building blocks from one plant and put it into another. Create a new plant that will bear five times as much fruit, or five times as much grain, or vegetables."
The relationship between Margaret and her little brother are on par for most siblings, and the story builds to a twist that seems predictable as an adult but was mind-blowing as a child. To top it all of, the conclusion is slightly unsettling.
Reader beware . . .
