This was a good book. It really made me think about how lucky wealthier people are to have a home, school, food on their plate, and a roof over their head - but the girl had to take care of herself and her Grandmother, along with having to feed, dress, and take care of the household.

I like this because it's a story of someone making a story inside a story then the story gets wrecked then the story finished.

I really liked this book because, the writer's words really make you feel like you are in the place of the character.

I really liked this book. It was sad at times and exciting and happy at times. It was a story about friendship and how a poor girl can decorate a dumpster with paper.

It was good when Safiyah built a mural and was an artist. Also it was educational to learn about life for children in Kenya in the slums.There needed to be more excitement and maybe an adventure in the book because it was just day to day life.
