But New York City is not exactly what Amara thought it would be. It’s crowded, with confusing subways and suffocating sidewalks. Her father is too busy with work to spend time with her, and he’s too angry to spend time with Grandpa Earl.
As Amara learns more about Harlem and her father’s family history, she begins to understand more about who she is and where she came from…and who she wants to be.
