Bell Cambium is mellow. No doubt she finds the world quite troubling, butshe takes it in stride ‒ always silver-lined and positive.Lake Baklava is brutally frustrated. If something isnt done ‒a millionsomethings, actually‒ modern civilization is doomed.Despite their different perspectives, both girls feel a deep yearning to getinvolved, and effect the direction of humanity. Seeking inspiration, con-tacts, resources, and information, the girls venture to the infamous FallApart Park.A pair of explorers, they wander from the Parks beaten-path and discoverthe extraordinary secrets that make the city-park tick: a gang of radical kid-architects who battle straight-lines and other rulers with mold and impro-vised building; a cemetery-turned-compostery, which energizes the city; aglobal-coup to rebalance the world by eliminating every central-power;and Geo Godeau, the bearded extravagant who commandeered the cityas the first citizens fled, but before it was reappropriated by fringe-sustainability innovators and doers. When they leave The Lith, Fall ApartParks evolving skyscraper, Lake and Bells world will have changed ‒ as willeveryones.
