This 1997 Newbery Honor book, which is set in Africa, is both a survival story and a spiritual voyage. ""[The heroine] is a stunning creation--while she serves as a fictional ambassador from a foreign culture, she is supremely human. An unforgettable work,"" said PW in a starred review. Ages 10-14.
