This was a coming of age tale about a girl named Nidali who grows up in Kuwait, but has to move with her family to the United States after the Iraqi invasion. The metaphors and imagery of the setting used by the author were intriguing. The story starting with a young narrator in another country gave it a unique point of view. I was able to imagine how kids in another country (Kuwait) like to spend their free time and what kinds of games they play. Family relationships were also interesting to read about because the cultures seem different than most ones I have witnessed in America.
