By the Book: Hanna Alkaf’s The Girl and the Ghost

One of few Malaysian authors to be published internationally, Hanna Alkaf prides herself on writing unabashedly Malaysian stories. Following the success of her YA book “The Weight of our Sky”, she’s back with “The Girl and the Ghost”, a middle-grade title about a young Malaysian girl and a pelesit that finds its way into her life. But along the way, Hanna also unfolds a tale of friendships, growing up, and staying true to oneself. We speak with Hanna about her process of writing the book, and the kinds of stories she likes to write.
