The White Giraffe by Lauren St.John


 Alicia (aged 10) says "Rating:12/10 it's amazing,the excitement makes you faint."   

 At 11 years old, Martine is orphaned and sent to live with her grandmother on a game reserve in South Africa. Her grandmother seems strangely unwelcoming and Martine has a difficult time settling in at her new school. But she has an ally in Tendai-one of the keepers on the reserve from whom she learns the lore and survival techniques of the bush.

One night Martine looks out of her window and spots a young albino giraffe-silver tinged with cinnamon in the moonlight. This is the beginning of her mysterious and magical adventures-her dicovery of her gift of healing and a secret valley that she travels to with the giraffe where she'll find clues about her past and future.
