"In this powerful new novel for teenagers, 16-year-old Jahnine is having to fend for herself amidst a series of family misfortunes, with her mother in hospital battling cancer and her brother gone without a trace. Family legend has it that a patu taken during the Land Wars by her great-great-grandfather has left a curse on them. Determined to return the patu and lift the curse, Jahnine turns to a strange Maori boy, Andy, and follows him away from Auckland to try and put things right. Nothing turns out the way she imagines in this powerful coming-of-age novel from Tim Tipene."--Publisher description.
