This outgoing, friendly Liberian-American is ready to take on elementary school—starting with her first day of third grade. Tavea is so excited—until it’s time to take attendance. She quickly realizes when her teacher has trouble pronouncing her name that she isn’t like everyone else. As the school year continues, Tavea continues to realize how the parts of her identity, culture, and family make her different.
