Evette is a nature-lover full of crafty ideas for reusing and upcycling clothes. When she finds a vintage swimsuit in Gran E’s closet, she also uncovers a family secret that could explain why her mother’s family, which is Black, and her father’s, which is White, don’t spend time together. When Evette visits the river where her grandmother used to swim, she realizes how polluted it’s become. She rallies her new friends Makena and Maritza along with her whole family for a cleanup day. She’s determined to heal the river—and maybe even heal the division in her family. But will it work?

This audiobook includes an essay by the author on growing up biracial and ideas for helping the planet and fighting racism.

Sharon Dennis Wyeth was born and raised in Washington, DC. She’s written lots of books, but her first publishing experience was at Anacostia High School, where she was editor in chief of the yearbook. She also started the Southeast Teen Lounge, where she and her classmates got together to listen to music, eat hot dogs, and talk about news of the day. She loves hiking and owns a red canoe. She lives in New Jersey, but will always love DC’s Anacostia River. Her many books include Something Beautiful, The World of Daughter McGuire, and Always My Dad, a Reading Rainbow book.
