In The Elephant Girl, poachers are killing the elephants in Maasai territory, and Jama will do anything to protect them. She has formed a bond with the elephants, a bond that can’t be broken. What will happen when her ethics go against her people?
𝙃𝙤𝙡𝙮 𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙥𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙨, this story is spectacular. The authors told this tale, incorporating the Maasai’s beliefs and celebrations. This led to a heartfelt story that could make you smile and bring you to tears.
The story takes place in Kenya. Although it is fiction, it represents the real threat to elephants living in Africa and Asia.
Jama is the MC who is only twelve and different from other girls her age. That is definitely noticed by those around her. She is decisive regarding her beliefs and full of emotion when she suffers tragedies. You can’t help but love her. 💗
There are other kind characters and some despicable ones as well. I thanked the stars Jama had reinforcements from the good ones.
There is a glossary of terms for the Swahili language (I think that is correct) that is very helpful as many words are authentic and written in this language. Of course, I didn’t see it until the end. Even then, it helped me out.
The Elephant Girl is a quick read. I read it after I went to bed last night and couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed learning about the Maasai and the plight of the elephants.
Well-written and tied to your heartstrings, The Elephant Girl is a read for everyone. Pub day is July 25, 2022. I suggest pre-ordering it.
Thank you to NetGalley, the authors, and the publisher for providing this ebook for me to read and review. I consider myself lucky to have been chosen.
