Rani and her family end up in a relief camp due to the Pakistan floods. They're doing what they can to help other flood victims. Rani is barely eight years old, but she wants to help as well, although she doesn't really know how. With the occasion of Eid coming up, she figures out a way to make at least one her friends happy.
The story is a little long for younger kids, but kids age seven and up will definitely enjoy it. Sometimes the pacing is a little slow but overall the story is good and the characters are fun. I read this with my little cousin when I was babysitting her, and she kept asking all kinds of things about the floods, about relief camps and how they work, and so on, so she definitely learned something from the book.
