    Refactor a render Prop Component to a Custom React Hook

    reactReact
    ^16.7.0-alpha

    Our <Query /> component is a render prop based component that the <User /> component uses. But because it doesn't render anything, we can actually just change it to a custom hook. Let's create a useQuery hook that returns the state from the hooks the Query component uses and use that instead. But we'll preserve the component so we don't have to refactor everywhere that uses the Query render prop based component as well and we can keep our tests passing as they are.
