Review #1
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
This book is about 11 year old Martine, whose parents are killed on her birthday night in a terrible fire. Then Martine has to move to Africa to Sawubona and meets the white giraffe, and together they embark into adventure. The main character is Martine. Other characters are Tendai, Gwyn Tomas, five star gang, the white giraffe, and Ben. I didn’t like this book because certain words I didn’t understand and couldn’t pronounce.
