Description

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.

Review quote

* Quiet and tender, this is a story that audiences will wish took longer to read.-- "Bulletin, starred review" An inviting choice...-- "Booklist" * MacLachlan again demonstrates a gift for combining an economy of prose with a bounty of emotion.... As befits a story in which words and music play such a central role, MacLachlan's writing is melodic, poetic, and enchanting.-- "Publishers Weekly, starred review" * Filled with little moments of quiet wisdom and gentle humor, Newbery winner MacLachlan's story about family love soars.-- "Kirkus, starred review"
