'When Yared is left at his nanna's for a week he feels like running away. He wants to be in his own room, with his football cards and his batman doona, not in the spare room at his nanna's with its blue flowery bedspread and the bookshelf full of old-fashioned girls' adventure stories. He wants his own parents, not his brisk, stern nanna.
But then Yared stumbles upon a box of old coins in his nanna's bedroom and things begin to change. Worlds open up before him and lives are linked across the decades as Yared discovers truths he never knew about history, love and belonging.' (Publisher's blurb)
