About the Author
Ruth Freeman grew up in rural Pennsylvania but now lives in Maine. She is the author of several successful nonfiction picture books but this is her first novel.
"Spanning a school year, this touching novel in epistolary format relates the triumphs and travails of a young Congolese refugee, Anaïs, and her family. . . . Highly recommended for libraries seeking timely stories about the immigrant experience." --School Library Journal "Anaïs' epistolary story, told in easy-to-read letters and charming doodles, might be empowering to English-language learners; and middle-graders unfamiliar with such experiences might find new depths of compassion and understanding."--Booklist
