If every child had a twin tree...

İrem Uşar, beloved author of fantasy novels, takes her readers to a distant treeless universe this time. The growth journey of three extraordinary friends intersects with the mysterious history of their country which is tightly bound to the past and is afraid of the future. The novel, which glorifies the awe-inspiring diversity, solidarity and adaptability of nature reminds us about the power of memory and the fact that truth will eventually come out.

Overview

Pink-haired, funny Sidra; optimistic giant Enerro; curious Bika walking on her hands… They are all eagerly waiting for the 13th Birthday Celebrations in The Deep Forest. Growing up in Root Land, surrounded by tree roots, without any leaves or flowers, the children have to recognize and knock down their twin trees in the forest they will see for the first time. The port of their water-surrounded country comes to life with the sudden arrival of representatives from distant lands. Events that begin with panic over lost seeds will lead the three friends to a hidden past, and the true story of their country will be revealed…
