"Another beautiful tale from a very talented children's author." ~ Jackie

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.

Everyone in Lucy's family sings. Opera. Rap. Lullabies. Everyone, except Lucy. Lucy can't sing; her voice just 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, danger finds its way into the heart of Lucy's family, and Lucy will need to find her voice to save her brother.

Jackie says:
"I've loved Patricia MacLachlan since I first laid eyes on Sarah, Plain and Tall.  So when this book showed up on my desk, I could barely wait.  This is a lovely family story about keeping secrets in a lot of ways, and the power of being a family.  It seems like a simple story, but there is a lot going on between the words.  Another beautiful tale from a very talented children's author."
