This coming-of-age novel, which won the Jhalak Prize, is a feminist interpretation of Ugandan fairy tales. It tells of a girl growing up with her grandparents, whose painful search for her mother is linked to the process of growing up and discovering her own femininity. »It is a novel that derives its energy from its considerable wit and the charm of its central character« [The Guardian].
