Sofie and the CityBook - 2006
A heartfelt story about a homesick young girl whose new friend helps her learn to like her new home. Sofie doesn't like living in big American city and would rather go back to Senegal. "It is really too ugly here," she tells her grandmother on the phone. "I think I should come home." "Before you come back," her grandmother says, "you'll just have to make it pretty." But how can Sofie ever make the city pretty? It all begins when she meets a girl with a box of chalk.
