Dalu’s Diary

1,400.00

Following his father’s promotion, Dalu, a precocious ten-year-old boy and an only son, moves to Abuja with his family. He enjoys an exceptional filial relationship with his uncle, Akachi while the relationship between him and his vivacious younger cousin, Ifee, is strained. In Belle Brook Academy, his new school, Dalu is confronted with new realities. He feels like an outsider and struggles to fit in while having to deal with bullying and taunting from his classmates. Day by day, he pours out his feelings about the ups and downs of his life into his diary. One day, he wanders into the school’s hall of stars, and an ambition is born in him. Dalu’s fate in his new school hangs on the balance and fulfilling this ambition will determine how the balance tilts. Akachi’s love and support becomes very instrumental to his actualizing this ambition. In a cruel twist of fate, a tragedy strikes on the day he actualizes his ambition. Dalu would have to find a balance between his newly-won stardom, the new tragic realities that surrounds his existence and mending his strained relationship with Ifee. Dalu’s Diary has been described by critics as a moving and adsorbing story of honesty and integrity, cultural pride and affirmation, determination and success and family love and loss. Children will identify with Dalu’s struggles and be reassured by the underlying message of hope.
