Description
Dakar and her older sister, Jakarta, have spent their whole lives in various African countries, as inseparable from each other as briar and rose. But now that they are moving to the United States, Dakar's biggest fear is that her family won't stay together. At first Jakarta refuses to move with them, and Dakar is bereft without her. Then Jakarta arrives and throws the family -- and Dakar's tender new American life -- into turmoil. Where is home when you have lived in so many places and your family seems to be falling apart? It takes a basketball championship, the first snowfall, and a new friend for Dakar to discover the courage to bloom, the strength to let her sister go, and the magic of carrying her home in her heart.
