About the Author:

Sally Grindley lives in Cheltenham and has worked in children's books all her career - first as an editor for Books for Children book club and now as a full-time writer. Sally is the author of many outstanding picture books for young readers and this is her second novel. Sally travelled to China to research SPILLED WATER.

From AudioFile:

This exceptional story, set in remote China, depicts the coming-of-age of a young girl. Narrator Liz Sutherland perfectly captures every nuance of this bittersweet story. When Lu Si-yan's beloved father dies, her uncle sells her to make money for the family. She goes from being a servant girl to hard labor in a toy factory but still maintains her sweet resilience. Sutherland conveys youthful thoughts in a most unique manner; she also portrays a lovely grandmother, a brain-damaged boy, and the good and bad people Lu Si-yan meets on her journey. Sutherland brings a smile as listeners hear her dramatically convey every aspect of the story. A remarkable tale that will appeal to listeners of all ages. S.G.B.
