Parched

(2013)
A novel by

 

"Brutally beautiful, this is a story of courage and heart."
Kathi Appelt


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.
