Healer of the Water Monster / Brian Young

Nathan is a young man who has chosen to spend the summer with his grandmother–his Nali–rather than be in the middle of his parents’ divorce (and have to hang out with his dad’s new girlfriend).  It will be a summer without cell service, his friends, or air conditioning.  Nathan learns, though, that there are amazing beings very special to his Navajo heritage who are suffering much worse than he is.  Is Nathan strong enough, smart enough, and resourceful enough to help everyone who needs him this summer—Holy Beings and family members alike?  Find out in this wonderful adventure for ages 8 and up. Also available digitally through Libby/Overdrive.
