[Joëlle Stolz; Catherine Temerson] -- At the end of the nineteenth century in Libya, eleven-year-old Malika simultaneously enjoys and feels constricted by the narrow world of women, but an injured stranger enters her home and disrupts.

A Muslim child poised on the threshold of adulthood comes to understand that her world is less constrained than she supposes. Bolstered by centuries of custom, the streets of the Libyan city of Ghadames are considered men's territory, while, with limited exceptions, the women are confined to the connected rooftops.

Though Malika has the freedom of those rooftops, she yearns for more: to travel. The real beauty of The Shadows of Ghadames is that it transcends the exotic to explore universal truths about the condition of being human.”—Suzanne Fisher Staples, author of Newbery Honor Book, Shabanu: Daughter of the Wind.
