The White Giraffe

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Hachette

Devastated by her parents' death, Maxine is sent to South Africa and a grandmother she didn't know existed. Grieving, and puzzled by her decidedly cool welcome, Maxine instinctively loves the landscape and animals in the wildlife reserve her grandmother manages. She's curious about the legendary white giraffe and when Maxine glimpses it one night, the connection between them is instantaneous.

So begins an exhilarating, dangerous adventure as she uncovers a deadly threat from poachers - and secrets about herself and her history. There is plenty of excitement and tension but also striking descriptions of the beauty of the African bush, of wildlife under threat, and a strong sense of the legends that underlie the present in this readable novel.
