Healer of the Water Monster by Brian Young is a fantasy book. Nathan is spending the summer
with Nali, his grandma. During the summers, Nali lives in her mobile home in the desert. When
Uncle Jet comes to live with Nathan something weird comes with him. Nathan isn't entirely sure
what it is, but he knows Uncle Jet will need help. A few weeks later, Nathan meets Pond, a sick
Water Monster. The Holy Beings trust Nathan to save Pond, but that is not an easy task. Pond
must learn how to protect himself in the Third World, and he doesn’t have much time. As Pond
continues to get sicker, Nathan begins to wonder if his efforts will be enough, or if he will lose
his friend forever. I liked this book and would recommend it. I liked that it included parts of
Navajo culture. I also liked that even through his struggles Nathan knew he could always
depend on his friends and family.
