Thirteen-year-old Chlo. left her whole life back in Montreal, including her mom and her best friend. Now she's stuck in Victoria with her dad and her estranged grandfather, Uli, who recently had a stroke.

The result is a garden full of unusual and endangered produce, from pink broccoli to blue kale to purple potatoes...But Chlo. learns that the garden will soon be destroyed to make way for a new apartment complex. And the seed collection is missing! Chlo. must somehow find a way to save her grandfather's legacy.
