When her little brother faces a lengthy stay in the hospital, Farah is sent visit her grandmother in Florida. Sitti Fayrouz doesn’t speak much English, and she has lots of rules. She thinks rocks are dirty, that towels need to hang a certain way, and that hummus must be scooped from the side of the plate. Even worse, Farah managed to make an enemy out of one of her grandmother’s neighbors—before she even arrived in Florida! Will Farah find a way to have fun being the only kid in a retirement community, or will she spend the trip worrying about her brother and counting the days until she can go home? Readers will love the fourth book in this series about a strong Palestinian-American girl.
