by Katie Quirk

Thirteen-year-old Shida has lived a life filled with problems. So when the elders of her Tanzanian village make the controversial decision to move to a new location, Shida welcomes the change, hoping for new opportunities. Not everyone in her village shares that hope, but Shida is determined to prove to the villagers that they can have a better life in their new home.
