Four starred review
I'd buy hundreds of copies of this book...
and give them to teens all over the world to show them what love is and what really matters. How we need to bring each other up instead of tear each other down. That, right there, is what life is about, and I’m thankful to [WATER IN MAY] for reinserting that in my heart."
"Water In May is one of the best debuts this year...
One that will make your heart break and then give you hope. It had a stunning cast of diverse characters, beautifully forged friendships and a kind of coming-of-age story I’ve never seen before in YA books."

Interview with Ismée
"Ismee, what was your inspiration for writing WATER IN MAY?"
The insides of my white coat pockets are marked by the crayons I carry around with me.
"My goal as a writer is to create a story that will leave the reader feeling intense emotion."
