Walker Books for Young Readers
In Ethiopia, water is hard to find. Alemitu must walk miles and miles with her emaye, her mama, to reach the water they need to live, and hunger chases them wherever they go. Emaye love's Alemitu and will do anything to make her daughter's life better.
When Alemitu moves to America to live with her new adopted family, her name becomes Eva. Eva goes to school every day and never has to walk miles for a drink of water. Hunger no longer roars in her belly.
Eva has traveled far but she is still Alemitu. As long as water flows in the rivers and rains from the sky she will never forget her home or her emaye's words: that water connects us all.
