The Calla lily
The calla lilies grow wild in Auckland. They are beautiful and is nostalgic to me. My Grand dad used to have similar ones growing in his rubber garden in Borneo.
In the book, the street kids chose these flowers to represent them. Wild and strong. Strong because they grew by themselves and bloomed even in winter.
A reader wrote, " I found your book really awakening and down to earth. An interesting read and lots of research."
Another commended, "You were very brave to go to places where people were afraid to go."
