Straits Times Press Books :: Young Adults :: A POCKETFUL OF MEMORIES



Thirteen-year-old Emily Seow and family are in Malacca visiting her paternal grandfather, Grand. Uncle Thomas, his wife Auntie Nelly and their two children are there too. What appears to be an ordinary family gathering turns out to be an occasion where secrets are revealed, self-identities are challenged, and familial bonds are tested. Grand is gradually losing his memory, and now keeps his treasures close to him. Emily finds herself confronted with a revelation that could unravel what she once thought was true. Auntie Nelly, whose difficult childhood have made her the strong and determined woman she is, comes to realise that these very attributes may eventually cause her to lose everything that ever mattered to her. This is a story that tells how love is about accepting others, even in their frailties; how courage is about forgiving another; and how
it is often from the weakest among us, that we learn wisdom and charity.
A Pocketful of Memories tells what it really means to be family.
