Summary
An autobiographical coming-of-age story set in Zimbabwe during a time of political turmoil by a talented new author. Hannah lives in Zimbabwe during the reign of Robert Mugabe: it's a country of petrol queues and power cuts, and police with loaded rifles who patrol the city streets. By all accounts, Hannah is lucky. She can afford to go to school, has never had to skip a meal, and lives in a big house with her mum and their African housekeeper, Gogo. Hannah is wealthy, she is healthy, and she is white. But there are some things money can't buy. Money can't stop your divorced parents from fighting. Money can't buy back your grandparents' farm. Money can't always keep you safe. Her luck in life has kept her sheltered for a long time, but things are beginning to change. As she is forced to navigate the increased tension between her warring parents, the differences between herself and her peers, and her relationship with Gogo, Hannah starts questioning much of what she previously thought to be true
Summary
Hannah lives in Zimbabwe during the reign of Robert Mugabe - it's a country of petrol queues and power cuts, food shortages and government corruption. Yet Hannah is lucky. She can afford to go to school, has never had to skip a meal, and lives in a big house with her mum and their Shona housekeeper. Hannah is wealthy, she is healthy and she is white. But money can't always keep you safe. As the political situation becomes increasingly unstable and tensions within Hannah's family escalate, her sheltered life is threatened. She is forced to question all that she's taken for granted, including where she belongs.
