A thought-provoking story of hidden lives, Waterbound is set in a future of limited resources, allocated to those who can contribute to society, while people unable to contribute are quietly removed. Gem finds her way beneath the City, into an unknown place. There she finds the forgotten people, the Waterbound. Gem and her friend Jay, girl and boy on the brink of knowing more than they should, follow the Waterbound as they fight to be part of the world above. Admin, the City’s government, has them under constant surveillance. Can the Waterbound succeed, or are these hidden people best forgotten? And even if Gem and Jay can help, is there a safe way out?
