Review:
Grace is a reader. In her schoolbooks, all the families have a father and a mother. Since she lives with her ma, her nana, and a cat, she's convinced that there is something wrong with her family. Her mother assures her, "I must have told you a hundred times about how we split up, and your papa went back to Africa." Grace is not consoled until two plane tickets to Africa arrive in the mail for her and Nana. The two fly off, descending upon unsuspecting Gambia at its colorful best. Grace learns what Nana's always said is true: "Families are what you make them."
