Not all that long ago, there were things people thought "only boys" could do. On the island of Cuba there was a girl, however, who dreamed of drumming. And even though there had never been a girl drummer on her island, she worked, she practiced, she persisted -- hoping that one day her dream would come true.
Author Margarita Engle and illustrator Rafael López have created a vibrant, warm and rhythmic story about a girl, her drums and her dreams.
