When her activist mom is sent to prison, Liberty Briscoe is sent to Ebbotsville, Kentucky to stay with her granny, Kat. What she finds when she gets there is orange tap water, and many people sick or dying in that community. When her granny is diagnosed with cancer, Liberty realizes that the Peabody Mining Company is to blame, but no one is willing to do anything about it. Does she dare take them on? Finding allies is unlikely since the entire town depends on the mining business. This debut novel is a page-turner and contains themes of political power, activism, fractured parental relationships, friendship, cancer, hunger, loss, and a tiny bit of romance.
