ACHUKA Book of the Day 6 Oct 2020
The new girl is beginning school in a new country. The children in her class are unfriendly towards her – refusing to include her because of her strange lunches, her unfamiliar clothing and her inability to understand their language. The narrator and her classmates become locked in a cycle of cruelty, but when beautiful paper flowers begin to appear in their classroom, something starts to change. Entranced by their beauty, the class come to realise that the new girl is the maker of these lovely things and that, despite the unkindness she has received, she is willing to share her skill in the art of paper folding.
