“I’m Wygenia. On my island, we speak a language that’s all our own, so you might not be familiar with it. I’m going to tell you about the time my grannie got sick and how my mooma and I helped her get better. I’ll tell you exactly how it happened, using the exact words Mooma and Grannie used.”
When her beloved Grannie falls ill, ten-year-old Wygenia feels lonely and helpless. Then she learns about a healing plant so powerful it’s called 'Wonder of the World.' But will it really work?
