From award winning author, Jonathan Friesen, teens will appreciate this sharply written novel with foreboding fantasy that still offers hope. Acclaimed author Jonathan Friesen presents a young adult dystopian novel about a world where water is power, the control of people is complete, and a truth exists that the rulers will do anything to hide. Sixteen-year-old Paki has become the Deliverer, the only person permitted to connect the Toppers, who need water to survive, with the Water Rats, individuals who mine water deep underground. He uncovers secrets — lies — used to tyrannize his people. And when he meets a Water Rat who captures his heart, he begins a journey to uncover the truth, free his people, and fulfill a prophecy the world’s leaders have killed to prevent. Friesen, writer of the award-winning novel, Jerk, California, creates a sharply written tale that blends the power individuals have to change a bleak world with the power God grants to help them do it. Teens appreciate that this novel hits the trends with foreboding fantasy that still offers hope. And parents appreciate this faith-building alternative for teens drawn to The Hunger Games and similar novels.
