Waterstones Says

Brilliantly imaginative and packed with adventure, Townsend's stunning debut pitches a trio of children into a race against time to find a cure for sickness in a nature-filled world.

Set in a world where plants talk, friendship is hard-won and adventure is around the bend of every river...

Orla has lived on her own since Ma died, with only her beloved garden for company. When sickness comes and nature is blamed, Orla knows she must find a cure. Armed with her mother's book of plants and remedies, she steals away on a river boat with two other stowaways, Idris and Ariana. Soon the trio must navigate the rapids of the Inkwater to a poisonous place from which they may never return...

The debut novel from an astonishingly talented new writer, a wild rapids-ride of a story, suffused at every turn with authentic details of the natural world.
