'The Fig Tree'...Coming soon!
'The Fig Tree' has finally, officially been announced! This one means a lot - not only is it highly personal, but it is also the story of my island... so no pressure, right?!
Cyprus has a long and complex history of conflict. The island is still divided and the issue is still something that is discussed daily in the news. The author's note in the book begins to explain the history and current situation, providing the opportunity for further research and discussion on conflict and conflict resolution.
Thrilled to be working with the Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan Kids team again for this second book as well as the very wonderful Leah Giles who will be illustrating!
