Under Water

Under Water

by J.L. Powers

When her beloved grandmother dies, 17-year-old Khosi must learn to survive on her own. She has to take care of her little sister Zi, make a living as a traditional healer, and somehow try, despite everything, to finish school. When her beloved Imbali—an urban township in South Africa—flares up in violence, Khosi finds herself at the center of the storm. A taxi war threatens the safety of every person in Imbali and, most importantly, Khosi’s best friend and boyfriend Little Man. A murdered man winds up at her doorstep. And accusations of witchcraft swirl around her, despite her every effort to keep her healing practice above board. When Little Man chooses the wrong path, Khosi finds herself caught up in a new romance. A sequel to Powers’ award-winning This Thing Called the Future, Under Water picks up 3 years later.
