#BookReview: The Water Year by Max Howard

Synopsis: Sophie lives on the border between the United States and Mexico. She spends most of her time taking care of her little sister and working at the family restaurant, hoping to catch the eye of Ruben, the Mexican boy who delivers baked goods. Her father and uncle spend their free time scouring the desert as part of a civilian militia, hoping to stop undocumented immigrants from entering the United States. When Sophie becomes involved with an immigrant-aid organization called Water Is Life, it challenges everything she's ever known. Suddenly, Sophie is stuck at the borderline of family and justice.


Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This story was very short less then 100 pages long.  I don't normally read books in prose and poems but this one really gripped me.  This was a very serious story that packs a powerful punch. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Short Story (less than 100 pages), Prose, Death of a Parent

Max Howard lives in Wisconsin and is the author of Fifteen and Change. Every day, Maxtries to remember three things: a) the pen is mightier than the sword b) the first step toward building a better world is having a dream of how things could be different c) the second step is inviting other people to share in that dream.
