This Newbery Honor book by award-winning, bestselling author Nancy Farmer is being reissued in paperback!

Eleven-year-old Nhamo lives in a traditional village in Mozambique, where she doesn't quite fit in. When her family tries to force her into marrying a cruel man, she runs away to Zimbabwe, hoping to find the father she's never met. But what should have been a short boat trip across the border turns into a dangerous year-long adventure, and Nhamo must summon her innermost courage to ensure her survival.

About the Author:

Before becoming a writer, Nancy Farmer lived in Africa, and her work there included monitoring water weeds in Mozambique and helping to control tsetse flies in Zimbabwe. Since then, she has earned a host of prestigious awards for her writing, including three Newbery Honors for The Ear, The Eye, and The Arm; A Girl Named Disaster; and The House of the Scorpion. She lives in Menlo Park, California, with her husband. Visit her online at www.nancyfarmerwebsite.com.

From AudioFile:

Eleven-year-old Nhamo invites young listeners to share her adventures in the wilds of Africa as she flees from her village and a planned marriage to a cruel stranger. Along the way, as Nhamo blossoms into a self-assured young woman, listeners grow with her as they gain a new perspective on the rich cultural diversity present in this world. Narrator Lisette Lecat entices audio-travelers to accompany Nhamo on her journey in a masterful reading. Her English accent and easy characterization make the cross-cultural experience even more compelling. Through Lecat's delightful narration, this newest book by a Newbery Award-winning author will not only entertain listeners, but encourage them to value cultural differences. P.H.N.
