Summary
Kek comes from Africa. In America, he sees snow for the first time, and feels its sting. He<U+2019>s never walked on ice, and he falls. He wonders if the people in this new place will be like the winter<U+2013>cold and unkind. In Africa, Kek lived with his mother, father, and brother. But only he and his mother have survived, and now she<U+2019>s missing. Kek is on his own. Slowly, he makes friends: a girl who is in foster care, an old woman who owns a rundown farm, and a cow whose name means “family” in his native language. As Kek awaits word of his mother<U+2019>s fate, he weathers the tough Minnesota winter by finding warmth in his new friendships, strength in his memories, and belief in his new country
