In real life, Lillian is a Tiriki woman of the Luhya people in Kenya. She’s a dedicated change-maker who works in Nairobi as a family tracer. That means she helps to rehabilitate and reconnect girls who've been separated from their families with a safe place to call home.
The story is based on the real experiences and memories of Lillian as a girl, with the illustrations being guided by real life photos to make sure they're as true to life as possible! 10% of revenue and 50% of the publisher's profits from every book sold goes directly back into supporting her work. By buying a book, you’re not only learning about Lillian’s Kenya, in her own words, but helping to provide a sustainable source of income for her impact-driven work.
