Rashin is excited about her first visit to the beach in her family's new home. On the way there, she remembers what beach trips were like in Iran, the beautiful Caspian Sea, the Persian music, and most of all the saffron ice cream she shared with her best friend, Azadeh. But there are wonderful things in this new place as well - a subway train, exciting music... and maybe even a new friend...!

Many readers will recognize themselves or their neighbors in these pages" - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
