A glorious boarding school adventure set in Nigeria -
a story of friendship, empathy and fighting for what you believe
in.
'What a joyful, vibrant story! A book for the heart' EFUA
TRAORE, author of Children
of the Quicksands
Jummy has won a place at the River School, the finest girls' boarding
school in Nigeria.
Nothing can dampen her spirits, not even when she learns that
her best friend Caro won't be joining her.
By the Shine-Shine River, school is everything Jummy dreamt of,
with friendly new girls, midnight feasts and sporting prizes -
but when Caro suddenly arrives at the school to work, not to learn,
Jummy must bring all her friends together to help.

From a fantastic new talent in middle-grade contemporary
fiction, Sabine Adeyinka, based on her own experience of attending
boarding school in Nigeria
A joyful, glorious collision of classic boarding-school
story with vibrant 1990s Nigeria
Irrepressible Jummy investigates an intriguing mystery
as her best friend from home turns up at the school
