More than all the stars in a desert sky, Lalla wants to wear a malafa so she can be beautiful like her mother... mysterious like her older sister, Selma ... a fine lady like her cousin, Aisha.
How can Lalla show she's not too little for a malafa?
Set in Muslim West Africa, here is a delightful story about growing up that shows how families are much the same the world over.
