Image of item
Book
Phiona Mutesi is a teenage chess prodigy from the slums of Kampala, Uganda. Her dream is to one day become a Grandmaster, the most elite title in chess. But to reach that goal, she must grapple with everyday life in one of the world's most unstable countries, a place where girls are taught to be mothers, not dreamers, and the threats of AIDS, kidnapping and starvation loom over the people.
