A science fiction novel that takes us to a time and place where water is scarce and rationing is a must. Seventeen-year-old Noria Kaitio is the daughter of a tea ceremony master and she is undergoing training to become a tea master herself. Her father lets her in on a big family secret which, if it gets out, has the potential to ruin them.
Just a so-so read for me. I ended up skimming about the last third of the book.
