'A contemporary story about a young girl who has grown up in the city and who is to return to Badu Island to stay with her aka (grandmother). It is time for Wandihnu to learn about the customs and culture of her people who come from the Torres Strait.

The night before she leaves, Wandihnu slowly drifts off to sleep, and she begins to dream about the journey, about her aka, and about a very special friend.' (Publisher's blurb)
