What if there were no books? Nine-year-old Lyla Lyte can’t use her imagination because she doesn’t know how! There are no books in her hometown of Screenfield…only tubevisions. When her mom tells her that Mayor Crinkle banned reading and buried all of the books, she’s unable to keep the secret to herself. Desperate, Lyla convinces her three best friends, Samantha, Megan, and Nick, to search for them. Instead of finding books, they discover a mysterious seed. Lyla takes the seed home and plants it in her backyard. When it grows, Lyla stumbles upon the biggest surprise of her life, and Screenfield will never be the same! Will Mayor Crinkle find out about the Li’berry Fruit?

Why a town of readers would willingly surrender their books and not fight back may be a question that strains readers’ credulity, but Lyla’s mission is noble nonetheless.
