Trina thought she had trouble—no job, nowhere to live and a 12 year old brother landing on her doorstep. When they move to a derelict shack, Trina discovers that the river flowing at the back of the property is in trouble too. Great characters grappling with an urgent situation make for a racy read. The author resists a clichéd ending and there's plenty of scope for a sequel for this gutsy young woman and her friends and family.

I could not put this book down. The characters are believable and it deals with social and environmental issues in a compelling way. I would recommend it highly.
