This book was really interesting. It was neat to read about
this little girl, and her struggle with a mean nickname, and the rest of her
family. I really liked the “Courting Dance” as well that was pretty cool.
Overall I liked this one, but it wasn’t really great. It was
nice to pass the time with and I look forward to reading more about Kaya!
