Join author Efua Traoré to explore the connection between our world and the supernatural, as she shares stories from her Yoruba heritage and mythology!
Kuki knows that it’s her destiny to die young – but she refuses to believe it! Mostly because right now, her biggest problem is the stress of moving house and trying her best to fit in at her new school. One evening, she discovers an abandoned beach house full of shadows and as the light fades, she meets a girl called Enilo. The two quickly become the best of friends but Kuki has no idea how closely her destiny will intertwine with her new friendship.
