Kira has never listened to the rain on the roof, swum in a lake or seen a cloud. All of those things need water, and in Kira’s world nearly all of the water has disappeared due to the ecological disasters created generations earlier. What remains is strictly rationed by the government. Kira never doubts this system until the day she discovers a wonderful gift—she can bring forth water merely by touching the ground with her hand. Suddenly Kira dreams of refilling streams, rivers, and lakes and ending the permanent drought afflicting mankind. Unfortunately the government appears to have different ideas. Controlling the water has given them an unprecedented degree of power over the population—power, the government may not want to give back.

Kira has never listened to the rain on the roof, swum in a lake or seen a cloud.
In a world where water is rationed by the drop, unauthorized use is punishable by law. When Kira finds a flower and waters it in secret, her subversive act uncovers an astonishing ability. She can call forth water with the touch of her hand.
Suddenly, she dreams of refilling rivers, lakes and aquifers. Unfortunately, the United Territories Council has other ideas. They control the population by controlling the water. Now, they mean to control Kira too.
Seeking to outwit those who would enslave her—while surviving environmental threats that could destroy her—Kira holds tight to her dream: to make the world green again.
