Have you even dreamed of tending to your own garden? Anna Cheng certainly has. And when given a few packets of seeds and a copy of The Secret Garden, she begins to make that dream a reality in her new home’s big backyard. With her new friend, Laura, whose family also just moved in, Anna clears the land, tills the soil and scatters some seeds into the ground.

But when poison ivy, and a rainy autumn make a mudpile out of both the garden and the girls’ friendship, Anna must learn to wait, and watch how things can grow despite strain.

This prequel to The Year of the Book is a beautiful story about sharing passion, maintaining friendships, and the payoff of hard work.

— Jana


When Anna is gifted a copy of The Secret Garden, it inspires her to follow her dreams--maybe she can plant ivy and purple crocuses and the birds will come. Or maybe what grows from her dream of a garden is even better: friendship. And friendship, like a garden, often has a mind of its own. In this prequel to The Year of the Book, join Anna in a year of discovery, new beginnings, friendships, and growth.
