Summary
"Lola was just a baby when her family left the Island, so when she has to draw it for a school assignment, she asks her family, friends, and neighbors about their memories of her homeland...and in the process, comes up with a new way of understanding her own heritage"--
Summary
Lola dreads the school assignment to draw her home country because she has no memory of her birthplace on an island. She turns to her family, friends, and neighbors, asking them to share memories that will allow her to create a picture of her Dominican homeland in her mind and on paper. -- Description by Lindsey Dunn
