Kateri is a young girl, growing up in the care of her grandmother.
We see her reaching important milestones her first day of school, first
dance, first date, wedding, first child along with her mother, who is
always there, watching her child growing up without her. Told in alternating voices, Missing Nimama is
a story of love, loss, and acceptance, showing the human side of a
national tragedy. An afterword by the author provides a simple,
ageappropriate context for young readers.
