Description: Twenty-one-year-old Zelda, who lives with her older brother and caregiver Gert, is upfront with the fact that she has fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. However, Zelda is not going to let any label limit her ambitions - she wants to be ‘legendary’, as legendary as the heroes and heroines of the Viking world she is so fascinated with. As it turns out, there will be many opportunities for Zelda to be the stuff of legends as she and Gert navigate the tricky currents of their circumstances and her growing independence.

With its unique narrator and its compassionate exploration of the issues facing cognitively impaired adults, this is an exhilarating and heart-warming coming-of-age story.
