Excerpted from

Rickshaw Girl
Mitali Perkins

Naima is a talented painter of traditional alpana patterns, which Bangladeshi women and girls paint on their houses for special celebrations. She wants to help earn money for her family, like her best friend, Saleem, does for his family. When Naima's rash effort to help puts her family deeper in debt, she draws on her resourceful nature and her talents to bravely save the day. Rickshaw Girl includes a glossary of Bangla words and an author's note about a changing Bangladesh and microfinance.
