When Nefertiti plays the drums, the band plays as one. “I am Nefertiti” she says, and she feels ten feet tall. But when the new music teacher shortens her name to ‘Nef’, bit by bit, she starts to shrink. Without Nefertiti to keep the beat, the band is in disarray... Drawing on her inner strength and with the support of the other children, they help Miss Potts recognise the importance of honouring Nefertiti’s name. A heart-warming, joyous, empowering story of identity and belonging.

Keep Dancing, Lizzie Chu

Publisher: Abrams
Publication date: 28 March 2023
Twelve-year-old Lizzie Chu has lived with her Wai Gong (grandfather) in Glasgow since her parents died when she was a baby. But Wai Gong has been acting different lately. He spends a lot of time talking to his Guan Yin statue—the Chinese goddess of compassion—and seems to be becoming more forgetful. Even the shared passion he and Lizzie have for their favorite show, Strictly Come Dancing, seems to be tailing off. When Wai Gong mistakes Lizzie's friend Chi for Guan Yin, Lizzie seizes the opportunity to use Chi to take Wai Gong to Blackpool to the Tower Ballroom, where he’d always dreamed of going. If only she can get her grandad there, she thinks, he’ll find some peace. After all, one of the myths around Guan Yin is that she brings order and harmony, so it’s got to work out—right?
