Annotation

Following on from Figgy and the World, eleven-year-old Figgy is living with her grandmother in Ghana. This novel includes the reappearance of her pregnant mother, absent for over ten years, the birth of a younger brother and life in a poverty-stricken area. Nonetheless, the West African culture shines through in a positive portrayal of life of a small village.
