Feeling ignored by her family and disliking her new home in America, Sofie expresses her desire to go home to Senegal every week when she talks to her grandmother over the phone-- that is, until she makes a new friend! The vibrant sidewalk art the two friends create together brilliantly illustrates the turn-around Sofie experiences as she begins to feel accepted.
