"One day, Kamala and Maya had an idea. A big idea: they would turn their empty apartment courtyard into a playground! Based on a true story, this is the uplifting tale of how the author's aunt and mother first learned to persevere in the face of disappointment and turned a dream into reality. This is a story of children's ability to make a difference and of a community coming together to transform their neighborhood."--Jacket.

A powerful story written by Kamala Harris's niece telling how Kamala and her sister managed to overcome obstacles and a "no" answers to find a way to work with the community to make a playground outside their apartment.

I read it to my 6 and 9 year old grandsons....a quick but powerful read.
