Jungle Girl Mia is written by Karien van Ditzhuyzen and is a great book for all teenagers, about nature, love and life in Singapore’s urban jungle.
About the Book.
Getting lots of likes on her @junglegirl account makes 12-year-old Mia happy. Her online popularity skyrockets after she moves to a house next to a Singapore nature reserve and starts sharing real animal photos from her garden. BFF Alice won’t forget her now, even if they no longer live in the same condo.
The thing is, Mia loves animals – but as a toy or on a screen. Not on her kitchen table, like the banana- pilfering macaque she encounters the first morning in her new house. And the bigger @junglegirl gets, the harder it becomes for Mia to admit that she is scared of the wild, and that boy-next-door Kalim snaps most of her pictures. She could lose her followers, or worse, her BFF. And why isn’t Kalim allowed his own phone?
Can the haze enfolding Asia, threatening people, forests and animals alike, offer Mia a chance to set things right?
