Summary
The drawings of an introverted young girl make a powerful impression at a peaceful protest her family engages in.
"Lubaya has always liked being quietly alone. She prefers listening and daydreaming to joining classroom discussions, and she spends most of her time drawing, often behind the sofa while her family watches TV. That's where she is, creating happy pictures on the backs of her parents' old protest posters, when upsetting news shouts into the living room. The next day her family takes part in another march, and there, on one side of the posters being held high, are Lubaya's drawings--rousing visual statements of how the world could be. Her artwork is the most important statement on that powerful day."--jacket.
