Water by the Spoonful gives off a shimmering, sustaining warmth. Ms. Hudes writes with such empathy and vibrant humor about people helping one another to face down their demons that regeneration and renewal always seem to be just around the corner –The New York Times
The damage caused by war and drugs is usually self-evident; that caused by family, less so. But as Quiara Alegría Hudes reminds us in Water by the Spoonful, family — a category that can include the ones we create as well as the ones we’re born into — also has the power to heal. –The Boston Globe.
