Hope Is Our Only Wing


Tavengerwei, Rutendo

FROM THE BOOK JACKET: For fifteen-year-old Shamiso, hope is nothing but a leap into darkness. Grief-stricken and confused after her fathers mysterious death in a car crash, shes shipped off to boarding school. For Tanyaradzwa, a classmate whose life has been turned upside down by a cancer diagnosis, hope is the only reason to keep fighting.

As an unexpected friendship blossoms between them, Tanyaradzwa helps Shamiso confront her grief and fear of loss. In opening herself to someone with a potentially fatal illness, Shamiso knows that she might be opening herself to more pain. Yet Tanyaradzwa is the only one who gives her the strength to ask the burning question: What really happened to her father?

One of her greatest influences in writing remains her father, who tutored Rutendo from the age of nine, teaching her how to write and how to play around with language when telling a story. According to Rutendo 'writing is more than just story-telling for me. It's a way to protest against injustices, a way to encourage and a way to provoke thought and inspire'.
