A dissatisfied police officer is taken aback when the weed growing from her neat-freak husband's stoop appears to listen to her when she speaks to it. Shortly thereafter, plants begin reclaiming suburbia--and the excess children contained therein. Meanwhile, geneticists working to give animals larger brains and human language are killed. The novel posits a future in which humans atone for their destruction of the planet and subjugation of its wild creatures until balance is achieved.
