    "After helping her mother sell fruit all day in the hot marketplace, Sasifi uses her newly earned coins for a coveted ride home in a tap-tap, a Haitian jitney. . . . The smoothly written text is enhanced by beautiful watercolor paintings, done in the tranquil and shimmering hues of the Caribbean, that capture the sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and textures of the vibrant Haitian countryside and its distinctive populace. A satisfying journey." Booklist, ALA
