NAACP Image Award winner and ALA Notable, this luminous, celebrated novel in verse is now in paperback.

Serafina made a secret promise

to go to school and learn to read

so she can become a doctor

with her best friend, Julie Marie.

But following her dream isn't easy-

endless chores, little money

and stomach-rumbling hunger

all test her resolve.

When an earthquake hits

and separates Serafina

from friends and family,

she encounters her biggest test of all.

Serafina made a secret promise.

Will she survive to keep it?
