Inspired by a true story from the childhood of Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris!

A beautiful, empowering book about two sisters who work with their community to effect change, inspired by a true story from the childhood of the author's aunt, Kamala Harris, and mother, lawyer, and policy expert Maya Harris.

“A must-read for little girls around the world.” (Elizabeth Warren, US senator from Massachusetts)

“An inspiring tale.” (Stacey Abrams, former minority leader, Georgia House of Representatives; founder and chair, Fair Fight Action)

“I love this book.” (Megan Rapinoe, co-captain, US Women’s National Soccer Team)

One day, Kamala and Maya had an idea. A big idea: They would turn their empty apartment courtyard into a playground!

This is the uplifting tale of how the author’s aunt and mother first learned to persevere in the face of disappointment and turned a dream into reality. This is a story of children’s ability to make a difference and of a community coming together to transform their neighborhood.
