Abstract:

When she is nine years old, Martine is orphaned and sent to live with her grandmother on a game reserve in South Africa. Her grandmother seems strangely unwelcoming and Martine has a difficult time settling in at her new school, where she is conspicuously an outsider. But she has an ally in Tendai - one of the keepers on the reserve, from whom she learns the lore and survival techniques of the bush, and in Grace - who instantly senses there is something special about Martine.There are secrets about Shumba Mwoyo (the reserve) just waiting to be revealed, and rumours too about a fabled white giraffe - a trophy for hunters everywhere.
