Sophie lives in Gorom-Gorom with her carnivorous-plant obsessed dad.
Despite living there for two years and speaking the local language, Sophie finds it difficult to make friends.
So when she meets Gidaado, a young griot (story-teller) she agrees to join him and his albino camel, Chobbal, on a journey to his village.
It is not until they have set off that Sophie begins to realise just how dangerous the desert is - it's full of djinns that creep up behind you and jump on your head and make you go mad, not to mention the infamous Moussa ag Litni, a ruthless bandit who steals camels. . .
