Transporting and vivid, this is a tale of adventure, magic, self-acceptance, and friendship that will stay with you. Set in a world where technology is built from plants and flower petals are currency, thirteen-year-old Zahrah just wants to be normal, but her dadalocks - vines that grow in her hair and grant her powers she wishes she could ignore - mark her as different. When her best friend Dari goes missing, Zahrah must enter a mysterious forest and embrace her abilities to save him. From the author of the Binti trilogy and writer of Marvel’s Black Panther comics!
