This was a beautiful story! It gave me a realistic glimpse about life in a distant part of the world. I admired the plucky personality of Mehrigul. I'm even interested in learning more about the art of basket weaving.

A wonderful story about a 14 year old girl trying to make her dream come true even though it goes against the wishes of her parents and her community.
