La fascinante historia de Minni, una niña que defiende su convicción de que el agua debe ser para todos.

Minni vive en la parte más pobre de Mumbai, con acceso limitado a agua potable y horas de espera para usar el grifo comunal. Últimamente, el acceso está amenazado por cortes de agua y, como Minni descubre una noche, por ladrones. Sin embargo, en el edificio donde trabaja al servicio de una familia privilegiada, tienen agua potable y hasta una piscina en el techo.
Un día Minni se encuentra con el jefe de la mafia del agua. ¿Debe denunciarlo, incluso si pierde su trabajo y tal vez su vida? ¿Cuándo todo se volvió tan difícil?


A New York Times Bestseller.

Winner of the Junior Library Guild Gold Selection Prize 2023.

The riveting story of a heroic girl who fights for her belief that water should be for everyone.

Minni lives in the poorest part of Mumbai, where access to water is limited to a few hours a day and the communal taps have long lines. Lately, though, even that access is being threatened by severe water shortages and thieves, who steal this precious commodity—an act Minni accidentally witnesses one night.
Meanwhile, in the high-rise building where she started to work, water streams out of every faucet; there’s even a rooftop swimming pool! Minni also discovers one of the water mafia bosses there. Now, she must decide whether to expose him and risk her job--and, maybe, her life.
How did something as simple as access to water get so complicated?
