Suna Lara Miller

Grace Odero thinks about suna – mosquitoes – day and night from her home in western Kenya. As the dutiful daughter of a community health worker, she is on track to fulfill her father’s dream of becoming their island’s only physician. But secretly, she has the bigger dream of becoming the scientist to finally eradicate mosquito-transmitted malaria. After she lies to her father, accepts a position at MIT, and meets a similarly impassioned Chinese American scientist, she has a buzzing feeling that her two worlds are about to collide.
