Blinde sambok | Young Adult Fiction

Riana Scheepers


ATKV Youth Book Prize (10-12 years) (2003)

Gideonette remembers the day she was born in the finest detail. How everyone said that they had no hope for the little bundle of bones. And how she decided that she would live and prove them all wrong. It is this quality that set her apart during her childhood and adolescence: her fighting spirit. Even when catastrophes befall her family and people begin to whisper about the curse that hangs over them. Through this all, Gideonette strives for a better life and will have the reader cheering her on!
