Format: Kindle Edition
Zahrah the Windseeker is a fantasy story, set in a dystopian, West African village called Kirku. The story is about Zahrah, a teenage girl who is born with "dadalocks", which are dreadlocks that have vines growing through them, people born with this special hair are said to have mystical powers. Zahrah experiences bullying and torment about her unique hair, with some ignorant people believing she is a witch.

The book takes us on a journey with Zahrah learning to accept her uniqueness and special qualities and undertaking a treacherous adventure to help her friend. The world is woven beautifully and there are so many magical touches. We have "rhythm beetles", who turn up whenever music is played to shake their butt, lightbulbs that grow in soil, flower petals used as currency, ladies wearing dresses made entirely of tiny mirrors, baboons that are artists, computers that are grown from seeds, it’s an incredibly imaginative book.

I enjoyed this book, but it's not the YA novel it's marketed as. This would have been my favourite book ever if I had read it aged 8-10. Fortunately I still do like children's books and this is a good one. It's positive and uplifting without ever becoming grating or overly sweet. It's also quite funny outside the more serious scenes.

An amazing tale of a young girl discovering her unusual power and using it to save her best friend. The story really comes into its own thanks to the fantastic world in which it occurs, where people live in massive trees and where most objects are grown from seeds: CPU seeds anyone? This is world building at its best: alien but such that you would want to live there.
