IBNA- A thriller book for young adults, 'Bloom' (The Overthrow) (2020) by Canadian author Kenneth Oppel has been published in Persian and is available in Iranian bookstores.
New York Times has described 'Bloom': "The perfect book right now for young readers searching for hope, strength, inspiration — and just a little horticultural havoc." The work has been translated into Persian by Niousha Iman. Saad Publishing in Tehran has released the book in 300 pages.
Synopsis of ‘Bloom’ reads: “The invasion begins- but not as you'd expect. It begins with rain; rain that carries seeds. Seeds that sprout overnight, everywhere. These new plants take over crop fields, twine up houses, and burrow below streets. They bloom and release toxic pollens. They bloom and form Venus flytrap-like pods that swallow animals and people. They bloom everywhere, unstoppable.
Or are they? Three kids on a remote island seem immune to the toxic plants. Anaya, Petra, Seth. They each have strange allergies- and yet not to these plants. What's their secret? Can they somehow be the key to beating back this invasion? They'd better figure it out fast, because it's starting to rain again....
