A young Bedouin girl has earned the nickname Nadia the Willful because of her quick temper. Her brother, Hamed, is the only one who can tame her temper, and when he disappears and is presumed dead, Nadia is sad and angry. Nadia finds herself struggling with the loss of Hamed. In the end, Nadia shows her father how he can keep Hamed’s memory alive. (McDougal Littell The Language of Literature, 2002)
