I am reading ‘The White Giraffe’ by Lauren st John. In this story a girl called Martines mum and dad have died in a house fire whereas she escaped. She has to go and live on a game reserve in Africa called ‘Sawubona’ with her grandma because she is her only living relative who is capable of looking after her. On her way to the game reserve Tendai ( The man driving her to it) told her that her grandad had been accidently shot in a burglary to try and steal the rarest giraffe in the world. The white giraffe. Martines grandma owns one of them. The police have never traced the suspect so she decides to search Sawubona top to bottom for clues. I predict that after everything she does to try to find clues, all her attempts fail to capture her grandads killer. I wonder that even if she finds any clues at all the police will not accept any evidence from a young girl.. I also infer that she is very depressed that she has lost her grandad because it says ‘good spirits turned sad after Tendai said it.’ I would recommend this book to anybody between nine years old and eleven years old. I am going to try to read the next book from this which is ‘The Last Leopard.’
