Product description

‘My mum is up there somewhere. She’s waiting—I can feel it. I just have to find her in time, that’s all … Because when I do, I’ll know the truth about who stole her. ‘

Told through the innocent voice of a child, this is a story that celebrates the power of hope and resilience, from the author of The Boy at the Back of the Class.

On her tenth birthday, Aniyah makes a wish—a wish for her mum. After school that same day, Aniyah and her brother are rushed out of school and driven far, far away.

So Aniyah sets out to find out the truth—about the wish and about what happened to her mother. And in doing so she ends up on an adventure she never could have foreseen…one that involves a very clever squirrel, a homeless man named Harry, the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, and the biggest star in Hollywood…

A story that explores the subtle faces and endless impacts of domestic violence.
