". . . It is a wonderful story, presenting a view of immigration not generally seen in books for children . . . namely, whether or not to return to the country of origin. Gita's wondering when her feelings of longing for India ended and her feeling at home in Canada are expressed in a very moving manner . . ."

Gita's father announces that he has received a job offer back in India. Gita's beloved grandmother is visiting from India and would love to see them all return, but Gita has made friends and put down roots in her new home. A warm and touching story about the importance of friendship and stability, and the meaning of "home."
