In this haunting, lyrical novel told from three perspectives, Sarel has just witnessed the violent murder of her parents. But she is not completely alone on the drought-ridden land. Nandi is the leader of a pack of dogs who looks out for her pups and for skinny Sarel-girl. Nandi knows they are all in trouble, and she knows, too, that a boy is coming-an escaped prisoner with the water song inside him. A hard-hitting but ultimately hopeful survival story.
Melanie Crowder is a ceramist, painter, and sculptor who received her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College.
