A touching tale of parent-child separation and immigration, from a National Book Award finalist

After Sayas mother is sent to an immigration detention center, Saya finds comfort in listening to her mothers warm greeting on their answering machine. To ease the distance between them while shes in jail, Mama begins sending Saya bedtime stories inspired by Haitian folklore on cassette tape. Moved by her mothers tales and her fathers attempts to reunite their family, Saya writes a story of her own--one that just might bring her mother home for good.

With stirring illustrations, this tender tale shows the human side of immigration and imprisonment--and shows how every child has the power to make a difference.
