Beatrice is a thirteen-year-old orphan in Kibera, Nairobi, a Kenyan shantytown built on refuse and rubbish and one of the biggest slums in Africa. In this book she describes her life: her walk to school, the dust that blows between her teeth and the mud she wades through, her teacher's down-to-earth encouragement, her fear of being alone, how safe she feels at school . . . This sensitive account in words and photographs reveals the realities of life for some of the world's most deprived people and offers hope as Beatrice follows her dream to be a nurse.
