By Nicholas Aflleje & Sarah Delaine Paperback
Something hunts people on the outskirts of town… Sam and Lielet are two new friends living in Ethiopia. They’re dealing with the kind of problems that all kids have: judgmental social cliques, condescending adults, alienation… and a legendary brain-eating monster straight out of folklore. Sure, it’s not going to be easy, but all they have to do is live through it. A quietly unsettling plot which builds tension to construct a poignant story of otherness and mystery.
