FROM SARAH

Ten-year-old Naima excels at painting designs called alpanas, but to help her impoverished family financially she would have to be a boy— or disguise herself as one. Excellent (and short!) for all ages.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Naima is a talented painter of traditional alpana patterns, which Bangladeshi women and girls paint on their houses for special celebrations. But Naima is not satisfied just painting alpana. She wants to help earn money for her family, like her best friend, Saleem, does for his family.

When Naima's rash effort to help puts her family deeper in debt, she draws on her resourceful nature and her talents to bravely save the day.
