Abstract:

A twelve-year-old Caribbean boy wakes up to discover his grandmother, his only relative on the island, has died during the night. On his way into town to tell the authorities--and call his mother in America--he becomes the lone witness of a police execution. Worse, when he calls his mother's phone number, he gets a message saying the number has been disconnected. As he struggles to survive on his own, the boy finds himself holding secrets that could have devastating consequences--not only for his own survival, but the island's as well. The Thirsty Earth is the first in a two-book series about the global struggle for human dignity.--Publisher's description.
