Family, grief, ghosts, and a mystery: this clever and compelling young adult novel heralds a masterful new voice from Zimbabwe.

Mati’s family is reeling from the death of Mati’s mother. Her Baba has drawn into himself, her sister Chichi is rebelling, and
her young brother Tana is desperate for love and normalcy. When Chichi pulls her worst stunt yet, Baba uproots the family from
their home in England for an extended camping holiday in their native Zimbabwe. Along for the trip is Meticais, a fabulously
attired gender-neutral spirit–or ghost? or imaginary friend?–who only Mati can see and converse with.

Guided by Meticais’s enigmatic advice and wisdom, Mati must come to terms with her grief and with the difficulty of living
between two cultures, while the family must learn to forge their way in a world without their monumental mother. Full of
captivating characters and stunning plot twists, All That It Ever Meant delivers a nuanced and unforgettable story of grief, love,
and family.
