About the Author:

This young adult novel was inspired by some personal experiences and features a real native tribe under the hills of Mt. Kenya.

As kids in Africa, we were always curious about the Western world across the Oceans. The only problem was that our teachers emphasized on us reading African novels and learning about our culture. But many a times, I stole myself under a tree and enjoyed an Enild Blyton book or a John Grisham novel.

Change is the only inevitable thing in life. My book represents change and blurs the margins between worlds Oceans apart.
