Synopsis This story takes place in the Samoan village of Malaefou. The narration centres on the perspective of 10 year old Samoana. Songs, a homework assignment, and love letters to a boy called Iona can be found in her story. Different elements are woven to make up the whole of the story, not dissimilarly to the way in which different threads are woven together to form a fine Samoan mat. There is a wonderful universal nature to this story in spite of its specific location in Malaefou. Anyone who is going through or has gone through their adolescence can appreciate the kinds of struggles and simple joys that Samoana and her friends experience as they navigate their lives. As a renowned performance poet, Sia Figiel has formed this story such that it can be enjoyed equally through reading aloud or silently. Also, her great sense of humour shines through in the way that Samoana speaks about events that have happened.
