Gie Gie is a young girl living in West Africa. When she looks up at night, the wide sky is alight with stars. She can tame wild dogs with her song, make the wind play hide-and-seek, and the tall grass sway when she dances. But she can’t bring the water closer.

Every day she and her mother must make the long journey to the well, while carrying heavy pots on their heads. By the time they return home, Gie Gie is exhausted and thirsty, but she must boil the dirty water before she can drink it. When she goes to bed, Gie Gie thinks of the trip she must make tomorrow and every day after. “Why,” she wonders, “is the water so far? Why is the water not clear?”

She dreams of a day when her village will have clean water. Inspired by the childhood of supermodel Georgie Badiel, this touching book sheds light on the lack of clean water that affects nearly one billion people around the world.
