The Gardener by S.A. Bodeen

Evolution is the gradual development or something especially from a simple to a more complex form. It is important in The Gardener because in the gardener they are talking about the humans evolving into autotroph.

An Autotroph is an organism that is able to form nutritional organic substances from simple inorganic substance from simple inorganic substances  such as carbon dioxide. It is important in The Gardener because they are trying to make humans into autotrophs.

Heterotroph is an organism deriving its nutritional requirements from complex organic substances. It is important in the gardener because in the gardener the teacher talked about Heterotroph in science class.

Photosynthesis is when a plant uses sunlight to make there own food. And it is important in The Gardener because the super humans that they are making are photosynthesis that can help the human race survive.

My favorite questioned that I had we while reading the book

Why did she wake up when the DVD passes that one part?

Why does his mother keep secrets?

Is Mason's dad a plant?


She wake up at that part because all of the people there have there own stories that put them to sleep and wake up.

Mason's mom does keep secrets but it is only to protect him by the truth.

Mason's dad is not a plant he is a human but he has many characteristics that a plant does.

The Kartner Blue

The karner blue is a butterfly that only depends on one plant but the plants are getting destroyed so the problem with it is that it is going to get extinct.


The setting in the book The Gardener takes place in Melby Falls, TroDyn and Washington.

Meliby Falls is were the main character lives and is were the hole story happens. TroDyn is the corporation that is trying to make humans in to plants and took a lot of baby's from people and it is were Masons's mom worked.
