Merinette, as stubborn as she is, refuses, eager to prove that she is more than the talents she was born with. She wants to turn her love for books into an alternative way to help her family rather than confronting the surreal head-on. And, when an opportunity arises in a dingy car park, Merinette will do anything to achieve her goal.

    I had to pick this one up when I saw the beautiful cover. Surreal and magical, this is Wellington but not. Though it’s magical realism, the main themes of family and obligation are very down to earth.
