From the author of the bestselling THE GIRL OF INK & STARS comes a moving, enthralling and heartbreaking tale of finding your way home - shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and the Blue Peter Book Award.

PETER BUNZL Amihan lives on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants - including her mother - have leprosy.
