In a small river village where the water is cursed, a girl s bravery could mean the difference between life and death in this lilting, luminous tale from the author of "Parched "and "Audacity."

But when Luna s little sister falls ill with the river sickness, everyone knows she has only three weeks to live. Luna is determined to find a cure for her beloved sister, no matter what it takes. Even if that means believing in magic "
