"What makes this one a winner is that the story is well told. It’s filmic, there’s enough that’s familiar to make it believable and it’s a joyous if emotional ride," writes Diane de Beer in her review of Nine Hours by @LukeSikwebu. Read it here: https://t.co/Fs9jfp66K5 https://t.co/nRrxvYV5Lk

    Nolitye lives in a shack with her mother Thembi in Phola, a dusty township on the edge of Jo’burg. She is good at maths and likes collecting stones, which she places in a bucket under her bed. She also has unusual powers: she can communicate with dogs. Nolitye has two close friends, Bheki, who is overweight, and the bespectacled Four Eyes.  The girls’ lives are made miserable by Rotten Nellie and her gang of Spoilers.
