Ever since her family moved to Liberia from Boston, Sarina has had to endure her mother's mental illness on her own. Terrified of losing her daughter, Sarina's mom ties her to the mango tree in the front yard, forbidding her from having friends or venturing out.
But Sarina has a cherished secret -- a Liberian boy named Boima, who has come to take her from her dirty yard and show her the world of joy, hunger, and hope that waits just beyond the mango tree. Lush and lyrical, this poignant story explores the hunger for understanding within each of us, and is a stunning debut from a major new talent.
