Summary
  • "A biracial girl living in post-apartheid South Africa is determined to unveil the mystery of her white mother's hidden past"--
  • Annalisa, has had another vision: If Amandla wears a blue sheet her mother has loosely stitched as a dress and styles her normally braided hair in a halo around her head, Amandla's father will come home. Annalisa always speaks of her husband as if he was the prince of a fairytale, but in truth he's been gone since before Amandla was born. Many of Annalisa's memories from before Amandla was born are hazy; it's one of the many reasons people in Sugar Town give Annalisa and Amandla strange looks. That and the fact her mother is white and Amandla is brown. When Amandla finds a mysterious address in the bottom of her mother's handbag along with a large amount of cash, she decides it's finally time to get answers about her mother's life. -- adapted from jacket
