Her mother gives Fefa a blank book filled with clean white pages. “Think of it as a garden,” she says. Soon Fefa starts to sprinkle words across the pages of her book.
Josefa has what the doctor calls word-blindness, dyslexia. As she fills the pages of her blank journal, she discovers she may be able to handle this word-blindness, and come to the rescue of her family when there’s a chance of kidnapping. This novel in verse will introduce readers to life in Cuba and the difficulties of dyslexia.
