To protect her daughter from the fast life and bad influences of London, her mother sent her to school in rural Ghana. The move was for the girls own good, in her mothers mind, but for the daughter, the reality of being the new girl, the foreigner-among-your-own-people, was even worse than the idea.

During her time at school, she would learn that Ghana was much more complicated than her fellow ex-pats had ever told her, including how much a London-raised child takes something like water for granted. In Ghana, water became a symbol of who had and who didnt, who believed in God and who didnt. If you didnt have water to bathe, you were poor because no one had sent you some.

After six years in Ghana, her mother summons her home to London to meet the new man in her mothers lifeand his daughter. The reunion is bittersweet and short-lived as her parents decide its time that she get to know her father. So once again, shes sent off, this time to live with her father, his new wife, and their young children in New Yorkbut not before a family trip to Disney World.
