Fae K. (konfusedfae) | 13 comments Hello,

Trying to help my sister-in-law find a book she read as a kid - she can only remember the cover, which she said was a tan color and featured a young African girl in a purple dress and straw hat, either standing or sitting on a bench.

She said that the little bit of the plot she can remember is about a man going to Africa and bringing this girl back to the states.

Any thoughts?

Picture book or chapter book?

Fae K. (konfusedfae) | 13 comments She said it was a book she read when she was about 12 or so. She thinks it was geared towards adolescents/YA's.

Tab (tabbrown) | 4873 comments When was she 12 years old? A general idea of what year she read the book will help to eliminate newer books.
