This story earned 4.4 stars on Amazon. I enjoy both YA fiction and dystopian stories and the premise is relevant in light of climate change, so I want this to succeed. The scene is well set and gives us a feels for the terrible situation Dia is in. There is clearly jeopardy and trouble now and ahead, so the story questions are strong. But . . .

The writing has issues. Specifically, overwriting. If it persists the way it is in this opening, it could make the reading a slog at times. Here are the bits that stand out to me, highlighted in yellow.

I huff out a breath of despair as the thin trickle of water dribbles out of the hand pump. I close my eyes and pump harder as I pray for the sound of gushing, but it doesn’t come. The bucket is only half filled by the time my arm gives out from the pumping . There’s no fixing it so I drop to my butt onto the dry, cracked ground sending a puff of dust wafting up around me and lean back against the cool metal pipe that will be scorching hot in a few hours once the sun rises above the house. Tilting my head back, I scan the sky for clouds that might bring the desperately needed rain, but just like most days of my life there are none to be found. These few minutes, first thing in the morning, is the only time during the day that being outside is tolerable. I close my eyes and let thoughts of a better life, a better world, consume me. If you cut out the highlighted parts, the pace quickens and delivers the scene more powerfully. For instance, the part about tilting her head back to scan the sky. We have all looked up at/scanned the sky, and we know that we tilt our heads back when we do it if we're standing, so there's absolutely no need to include this action, the reader will get the picture without it.The last line could stay, but I’d cut it. It’s what’s happening that’s important in the opening, not musing, IMO.

The slap of the old, wooden screen door hitting the frame brings me right back to the bleak reality of my life as my little sister comes barreling towards me. The age and construction of the door don't matter.

This has me surging to my feet in concern . Grandmother hasn’t left her bed in weeks. Every morning, I peek into her room and expect her to have passed away in the night. Her being up either means she’s recovered or it’s the final spurt of her long life. I study my small sister and bite my lip. She’s so delicate, I don’t know how she will survive Abuela’s passing. Everything about my sister worries me. She’s so small for her age. Nine years old and she could pass for a (snip) There's no need for "This has me" because the previous statement by the sister is the clear motivation for her action. Instead of a passive surge, why not keep it simple and have her struggle to her feet (considering her weariness, I think struggling is more appropriate and visual). And why would she study her “small”—a comparative adjective, meaningless without context—sister who she has known her whole life. If the sister were doing something unusual, it would make sense, but there’s nothing strange going on.

Columbia Health

There are two immunization requirements that all students —regardless of credit load— must meet before registering for classes:

Students must submit their documentation upon admission or at least 30 days prior to their scheduled registration date. For this reason, a hold is placed on registration for all incoming students.

Ways to Document Immunity

Provide a certificate of immunization verifying the date of the disease or the administered measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines. This includes documents such as:

You must also complete the student section of the Columbia University MMR Form . All immunizations must have been received after your first birthday.

Note: The MMR combined vaccination fulfills the requirement for 1 measles, 1 mumps, and 1 rubella immunization. A second measles shot is required. The MMR combined vaccine was not available in the U.S. before January 1, 1972; therefore, no immunizations administered before that date are acceptable for U.S. students.

Live Measles: Live Mumps: Live Rubella:

If diagnosed by a physician, a history of having had measles and/or mumps is acceptable proof of immunity. Provide documentation verifying the date of the disease. Alternatively, a physician or health care provider must enter the dates of initial diagnosis on the Columbia University MMR Form ; students must also complete the student section of this form. A diagnosis of previous rubella disease is not acceptable proof of immunity under the New York State Health Code.

Immunity to all three diseases may be proven by a single blood test for antibodies. You must submit a copy of the actual laboratory report along with the completed student section of the Columbia University MMR Form .

Immunization records from another college or university are also acceptable. Complete the student section of the Columbia University MMR Form and submit it along with a copy of your immunization record. Since requirements vary by state and country, your record is reviewed for compliance with New York State standards. It is important for you to maintain a copy, as often the forms are illegible or lack identifying information required to process the documentation.

Students who graduated from a high school in New York State may wish to submit their immunization certificate for review. The New York State Department of Health is encouraging high schools to provide a copy of the certificate to students when they graduate.

If you are unable to locate your immunization documentation, Medical Services offers the MMR vaccine and titer (blood) test on a walk-in basis. No appointment is necessary. The vaccine and blood test are provided at no cost for new students and should be completed at least 30 days prior to registering for classes. Medical Services is located on the third floor of John Jay Hall. Please note that the results of the blood test may take 3-5 business days.

Walk-in Immunization Clinics

Free immunizations for measles, mumps, and rubella are also given at New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene walk-in clinics . Students may choose to visit one of the city’s clinics if they are unable to receive the vaccine at Medical Services at Columbia Health. The waiting time is usually one to two hours and may be longer during busy periods.

The clinic will document the immunization on an immunization record card. A copy of this record should be attached to thecompleted student section of the Columbia University MMR Form and provided to the Columbia Health Immunization Compliance Office.


New York State public health law requires that college and university students receive information from their institutions about meningococcal meningitis and the vaccine that protects against most strains of the disease that can occur on university campuses.

Columbia students must make an informed decision about being vaccinated and must certify their decision online .

Full instructions are given online, and the process takes two to three minutes. Students must formally indicate their decision about being vaccinated before they will be permitted to register for classes.

It is required that students submit their documentation upon admission or at least 30 days prior to their scheduled registration date. For this reason, all incoming students are placed on hold prior to their first registration.

Submitting Documentation

Submit documentation to the Columbia Health Immunization Compliance Office:

We are unable to accept health forms or immunization documentation via email for privacy and security reasons.

Be sure to keep a copy of your fax or delivery confirmation as we cannot verify receipt of individual documents. For questions or concerns regarding your immunization documentation, call 212-854-7210 or email 8400 Adult Size 7 38lvdK


Medical Exemption from Immunization Requirements

A letter from your physician giving the specific diagnosis and/or treatment, the length of treatment, and any medications that you believe preclude further immunizations must be submitted to the Immunization Compliance Office. After your request has been reviewed and processed, you will be notified in writing if either a temporary or permanent exemption has been granted. If a temporary exemption is given, you will be expected to complete the requirement at the exemption’s expiration.

Religious Exemption from Immunization Requirements

Most religious groups that object to immunizations will provide you with a standard form indicating such objection. You may also submit a letter detailing the religious basis of your objection. However, you may be asked to provide supporting documentation. After your request has been processed, you will be notified in writing if the exemption has been granted.

Recommended Vaccinations

Columbia Health recommends that students receive all routine childhood vaccinations: an updated tetanus booster, a vaccination for hepatitis B (3-dose series), and one for varicella (chicken pox). All vaccines are available to students at Medical Services , after paying the Columbia Health and Related Services Fee .

Vaccinations are available for a minimal cost to students who have not paid the Columbia Health and Related Services Fee. Charges may be paid to Columbia Health by cash, check, Visa, and MasterCard.

We strongly suggest students establishcare with a Columbia Health primary careproviderprior to receiving vaccines. Contact Medical Services at 212-854-7426 in advance to ensure we can accommodate your schedule, and bring documentation of your immunization history for evaluation.

In addition, travel vaccines—such as Japanese encephalitis, yellow fever, and rabies pre-exposure—can be provided throughthe CU on the Road Travel Medicine program.
