Like Water from the Author: Crystal M.. “Momma is like water. You know how you see rocks in a stream or a river, and over time, before you know it, the water has worn the rock down so that it can make its way where it wants to go?

Like Water from the Author: Rebecca Podos. Like Water is an unforgettable story of two girls navigating the unknowable waters of identity, millennial anxiety, and first love, from the acclaimed author of The Mystery of Hollow Places. In Savannah Espinoza’s small New Mexico hometown, kids either flee after graduation or they’re trapped there forever. Vanni never planned to get stuck—but that was before her father was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, leaving her and her mother to care for him. Now she doesn’t have much of a plan at all: living at home, working as a performing mermaid at a second-rate water park, distracting herself with one boy after another. That changes the day she meets Leigh. Disillusioned with small-town life and looking for something greater, Leigh is not a “nice girl.” She is unlike anyone Vanni has met, and a friend when Vanni desperately needs one. Soon enough, Leigh is much more than a friend. But caring about another person threatens the walls Vanni has carefully constructed to protect herself and brings up the big questions she’s hidden from for so long.

Like Water In Wild Places from the Author: Pamela Jooste. The stories and legends of the Bushmen were told to Conrad when he was twelve years old. He was on a hunting trip with his father, Jack Hartmann, a brutal but confused man who 'gave' Conrad an old Bushman to teach him the ways of the land. Bastiaan taught him not only about the beasts and plants and soil, but inculcated in Conrad a philosophy that would remain with him throughout his life. But at home Conrad learns a different set of rules as he and Beeky, the young sister he adores, huddle together listening to the sound of his mother being beaten and told she is trash. Jack Hartmann, a senator and man of power in the community, hates his wife and daughter as much as he loves his son and Conrad's mother impresses on him that he must always protect and guard his little sister. As they achieve maturity, Conrad appears to conform to the vision his father has for him. He joins the army, fighting on the Namibian borders - a savage and hideous conflict. But Beeky defies her father and the establishment, goes her own way, yearning for a new South Africa, a new life, tenderness and kindness in place of hatred and derision. The story of their fulfilment, tragedy, and the return of hope is the story of an ancient land fighting towards redemption.
