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.
