I absolutely loved this children’s book. Holly Goldberg Sloan has definitely hit this one out of the park! Sila is an American, but her parents are Turkish citizens. And when Sila’s mom protests being paid less as a housekeeping person than her male counterparts, the hotel where she worked for fourteen years fires her and causes her to be deported. But after a series of coincidences involving an older gentleman, an elephant, and a friend from her school, Sila manages to get her mom on the right track to come home. Sloan has penned a heartwarming story with well developed and extremely likable characters. This one is not to be missed!
