So there I stood, on the other side of the world, waiting at the bus stop. Everyone who knew my parents from before said, ‘Aren’t you glad to be home Nora?’
Little did they know…
When fifteen-year-old Nora returns to school in Australia, she despairs of ever fitting in. In this land of big spiders, short shorts and zero interest in world affairs, Nora is as strange as snow at the Sphinx. She doesn’t know the songs, she hasn’t seen the TV shows and, worst of all, she wore sandals on her first day of school.
The only place Nora feels like she really belongs is on the front seat of the bus.
Then Samuel joins Nora at the bus stop. He seems to be the only person in the whole school who genuinely cares about her. But is he really worthy of her trust?
Or will his secrets break her heart?
Travel with Nora as she takes the long journey home through faith, hope and love. With a little belly dancing on the way.
