Waterstones Says

From the author of the acclaimed Children of the Quicksands comes another Nigeria-set novel rich in Yoruba mythology as the cursed Kuki discovers a mysterious beach house and a bewitching new friend.

From the critically acclaimed author of Children of the Quicksands - shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize - comes a breathtaking magical adventure ...

Kuki refuses to believe in the curse of the Abiku. Her destiny is not to die young! Her biggest problem right now is moving house and fitting in at her new school.

One evening while exploring, Kuki spies a driveway lined with giant palm trees. It leads to an abandoned beach house of shadows and scattered sea shells. And in the fading light, she meets a girl called Enilo. They become friends - the best of friends. Until Kuki makes a terrifying discovery ...

A beautifully evoked middle-grade adventure set in the author's native Nigeria and drawing from rich Yoruba mythology. A story about the power of female friendship over fear and superstition.
