Here is a magical middle-grade graphic novel about a girl who doesn't lie but no one believes, and who winds up tangled in the web of a trickster spider of Ghanaian lore, Ananse. Everyone says that the wild stories Nana tells are big fibs. But she always tells the truth, as ridiculous as it sounds to hear about the troupe of circus squirrels stealing her teacher's toupee. When another outlandish explanation lands her in hot water again, her parents announce that Nana will be spending the summer with her grandmother in Ghana. She isn't happy to be missing the summer camp she's looked forward to all year, or to be living with family that she barely knows, in a country where she can't really speak the native language. But all her worries get a whole lot bigger - literally - when she comes face-to-face with Ananse, the trickster spider of legend.
