A song for Jamela

2010

by Niki Daly

"The summer holidays are here, and Jamela is as bored as a girl can be! All she can think about is the Afro-Idols TV final - so when she lands a job at Divine Braids hair salon, she can't believe her eyes at the arrival of the glamorous Afro-Idols celebrity Miss Bambi Chaka Chaka. But while Jamela's idol dozes and Aunt Beauty designs her starry hairdo, a buzzy fly appears on the scene and threatens to ruin everything . . . can creative Jamela save the day?"--Provided by publisher
