Zahrah the Windseeker, Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu, 0618340904
FROM THE PUBLISHER
 

In the northern Ooni Kingdom, fear of the unknown runs deep, and children
born dada are rumored to have special powers. Thirteen-year-old Zahrah Tsami
feels like a normal girl- she grows her own flora computer, has mirrors sewn
onto her clothes, and stays clear of the Forbidden Greeny Jungle. But unlike
other children in the village of Kirki, Zahrah was born with the telling
dadalocks. Only her best friend, Dari, isn't afraid of her, even when
something unusual begins happening- something that definitely makes Zahrah
different. The two friends determine to investigate, edging closer and closer
to danger. When Dari's life is threatened, Zahrah must face her worst fears
alone, including the very thing that makes her different.
In this exciting debut novel by Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu, things aren't always
what they seem- monkeys tell fortunes, plants offer wisdom, and a teenage
girl is the only one who stands a chance at saving her best friend's life.
