On her first day at Nkwenkwezi High, Aimée Mwamba loses her lucky coin. It was given to her by her grandmother before she fled the civil war in the DRC. It is something precious from her country, and she has kept it safe across many borders and through many refugee camps. So when she drops it, and handsome, charming Mandla picks it up, she is determined to get it back. But why has he kept it? And what does he want from her in return?
