After she was dispatched to a foreign land inhabited by her nemesis--insects--life changed for spoiled Lily.After wisely deciding not to squish the stink bugs she came across, she was taken to a place so desolate and unsavory it actually brought tears to her eyes. Her new friend, Hugh, showed her the damage wrought by pesticides. Lily learned that when the bees are gone, so are the humans. She learned 70 % of our food must be pollinated in order to grow. Without pollinators such as honeybees, mason bees, butterflies, and moths, we are quite literally doomed!Lily saw what the poison did to the gentle masons, honeybees, and other helpful insects. It seeped into breeding grounds, feeding grounds, and virtually everywhere. The honey bee did not have to suck the nectar to be poisoned- he only needed to walk on the plant and he was a goner!Going back home, Lily promised to fight the big million dollar corporations and all the misconceptions about insects. She promised Hugh and his intrusion a safe harbor in her yard. She made bee-hotels, wrote petitions, made YouTube videos with her brother and her friends, and discovered a natural fertilizer- an alternative to the poison being sold.In the meantime, attracted by her passion and selflessness, Heath, Averys best friend, becomes Lilys first boyfriend. Moments of humor come when Heaths grandma enters the picture. See what a few teens and their mom can do to save planet earth!
