After fourteen-year-old Amon finds an injured bird in the desert outside Ledron, his whole world is turned upside down. Ledron is the last community to survive the water wars - no other life exists. Or so their Leaders have told them. Now his mother, Lydia, is ill and Amon knows his community does not have the resources to help her. The bird seems to offer hope, but hope of what? If somehow they manage to escape into the desert, how will they survive, and what will they find?
