If only Mma was here, Naledi wished over and over. . . Mma lives and works
in Johannesburg, far from the village thirteen-year-old Naledi and her
younger brother, Tiro, call home. When their baby sister suddenly becomes
very sick, Naledi and Tiro know, deep down, that only one person can save
her. Bravely, alone, they set off on a journey to find Mma and bring her
back. It isn't until they reach the city that they come to understand the
dangers of their country, and the painful struggle for freedom and dignity
that is taking place all around them.
