Aniana loves to swim but her Mami wants to keep her out of the water

This book is a beautiful and bold novel-in-verse. Aniana feels most alive in the water and loves to swim more than anything, but her Mami, who lost a loved one to the water, has never gotten over her fear and wants to keep her daugher, Aniana, far from it. Aniana is disagnosed with juvenile arthritis and the water is actually beneficial for her swollen joints as well as bringing her immense joy. Will Anina be able to change her Mami's mind? Or will she have to give up what she loves forever?
