Nyla was four when her dad died. Eight years later she and her grandmother go to the supermarket and her grandmother swears she saw her dad. But how could that be true when he’s dead?
“I loved the relationship and unbreakable bond between Nyla and her grandmother.”Leontine (13)
Determined to fulfil a promise to her grandmother (not only her grandmother but also her best friend) Nyla sets on a journey to find her dad and hopefully find out a little more about herself, about who she is, along the way.
This enthralling book will get rooting for Nyla and itching to uncover the truth about her father.
This book is a story full of self-discovery and good friendships. I really liked this book because it was in a format I hadn’t seen before, written in short lines like you would expect a poem to be (which I later found out to be called a verse novel). I also loved the relationship and unbreakable bond between Nyla and her grandmother.
I would recommend this book to mystery lovers, in the age range of 9-11 years old but older readers can also love this book just as much.
