In this book the author bases her narrative on true events, and speaks in Manna’s voice to take us into her mind. That’s how we move closer to understanding her guileless, trusting responses that are so different from the usual. The uncluttered yet emotive pictures movingly echo Manna’s told-as-it-is account of what she can and cannot understand.
