From the Newbery Award winning author of
Sarah, Plain and Tall comes a story about one brave girl who saves her family from losing everything. In a starred review,
Publishers Weekly calls this lyrical tale melodic, poetic, and enchanting. Everyone in Lucy s family sings. Opera. Rap. Lullabies. Everyone, except Lucy. Lucy can t sing; her voice won t come out. Just like singing, helping Aunt Frankie prepare for flooding season is a family tradition even if Frankie doesn t want the help. And this year, when the flood arrives and danger finds its way into the heart of Lucy s family, Lucy will need to find her voice to save her brother. Filled with little moments of quiet wisdom and gentle humor, Newbery winner MacLachlan's story about family love soars (
