Summary "Bictor is a pretty typical eight-year-old: he races to get his chores done, finds math challenging and likes to play with his friends. One day, the new school teacher introduces Bic and the other students to the idea of equality between boys and girls. Bic has never really thought about it before, but he soon begins to notice the disparities around him. Like all the older girls and women in their Malawi village, his twin sister, Linesi, now walks the long walk to the river to collect water for the family. Now she can't go to school anymore. It's just the way things have always been. But does it have to be? And is there a way for Bic to change it? When Bic has an idea about how to help, he discovers that even small changes can have an impact."-- Provided by publisher.
