Remember chia pets?
Sure you do. Wee terra cotta critters. You’d dampen their porous surfaces, wait overnight, and next morning see squiggly green shoots sprouting from the pet-shaped pottery like band new hair curling up from a bald human noggin.
In "Sprouted" Amelia has devised a crackerjack recycling program that lifts organic gardening to a macabre level, and, as a result, her roses are remarkably beautiful.
Hold the thought.

I liked this, having been lucky enough to win a signed copy through Goodreads First Reads. It's short but packs in a lot of story. You're left to think about how Amelia's interest and knowledge in the experiments started, how her contacts were gained and so on, which adds to the intrigue. It's a sad tale, but a satisfying one. Recommended.
