‘One of those books that truly makes the world a better place.’ Sophie Anderson, author of The House with Chicken Legs
From acclaimed poet Nadine Aisha Jassat comes a gripping mystery...
“Grandma Farida is losing her memory – but I’m going to help her remember a huge secret.”
Twelve-year-old Nyla’s dad died when she was four, or that’s what she’s been told. So when Grandma Farida insists she saw him in the supermarket, Nyla wonders if she is ‘time-travelling’ again – the phrase she uses when Grandma forgets.
But when Grandma asks Nyla to find her dad and bring him home, Nyla promises that she will.
As Nyla sets out on her journey, she hopes that uncovering the past will help her to understand the mystery at the heart of her family... and to work out who she is.
A page-turning verse novel about memory and identity, and a bond that soars above all else.
‘A beautiful read about love, family, identity and worth.’ Hannah Gold, author of The Last Bear
‘A tender story about the meaning of life and love and loss.’ Katya Balen, author of October, October
Recommended for readers aged 9-11
