Though it is a story that involves art, it is not typical in any way... After growing up in Senegal, Zeina decides that street art is her calling. As an artist, she finds a sense of peace in large-scale painting - graffiti. So, she decides to take on a new journey, a new lifestyle for herself that will allow her to express herself in a way that is empowering to women, practice her art,and be part of a community. Her story is one of strength, empowerment and the will to follow your heart. Senegal's first female graffiti artist, Zeinixx, defies gender stereotypes as one of the top graffiti artists in West Africa. Zeinixx uses both graffiti and slam poetry for social good and is passionate about promoting the rights of women and girls in Senegal.

    La lettre

    This was a great novel for my 8th grade French students. It’s compelling and relatable. They love reading that other kids go through similar challenges during adolescence. Highly recommend.

    I recommend this product.

    Your students won't want to put it down

    This book is written for more of an intermediate student. This one definitely holds my students attention! I really love that it has ties in "real" life and you can incorporate the Netflix and History channel shows when reading this one. I suggest buying this one with its sequel!

    I recommend this product.
