Hope Is a Girl Selling Fruit

Reviewed by

Symmetry, symbolic images, and the folk art traditions of rural Indian women converge to explore feminism and self-awareness. Young Amrita Das’s extraordinary paintings are layered with metaphor, tracing the journey of a girl into womanhood. The precise language matches the illustrative style well and is generally accessible to youth of all ages. Conceptual and reflective, this tender, musing story celebrates the bravery of the modern young woman. Ages seven and up.
