What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Brutally beautiful, this is a story that both inspires and sounds an alarm, a story of courage and heart. Just like Musa’s ability to tap into water, it asks us to tap into our own humanity, even though it might be more deeply hidden than we can imagine."—Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Underneath

"A thrilling, imaginative soul quencher. Crowder’s stunning debut is sure to become a modern classic."—Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor-winning author of One Crazy Summer

"Spare, unflinching, and beautifully written, this novel walks the line between magic and reality."—Franny Bilingsley, National Book Award finalist for Chime
