‘Scar of the Bamboo Leaf’ by Sieni A.M.

I have probably recommended this title a million times. Yes, I know – you may be tired of my words by now. But I’ll be honest – this is a book I’m going to recommend over and over again, because it is absolutely worth it!

This is a story of incredible friendship and profound love between Kiva – a Samoan girl with a pronounced limp – and Ryler – a misunderstood American boy of Arab descent. While they help each other overcome their insecurities, a special bond starts to form under the Pacific sky.

‘Scar of the Bamboo Leaf’ is a book everyone – and I mean everyone, regardless of age or gender – should read. Not only is it beautiful and heart-warming but also extremely thought-provoking.
