Body of Water
Audience: 4th Grade - 8th Grade
Ember's summer is off to a rough start. Her trailer home burns to the ground in the middle of the night. The family got out safely, but they were not able to salvage anything except the pajamas they were wearing. With nothing but one set of clothes each and a few tents purchased with a small gift of money from her Grandmother, the family finds a place to live in a campground. To top things off, Ember has not seen her beloved dog since the night of the fire. She believes her best friend set the fire. She is terrified that people will find out they are homeless or worse, that her family is pagan. While swimming in the campground lake and collecting black berries to sell in order to buy food and pay for the campsite, Ember's path crosses with several others. Does she dare chance friendship again?
