This is an intensely personal and vivid story of two boys, one black, one white. Once they were friends, even though their circumstances are very different. But in a country riven by fear and prejudice, even the best of friends can betray one another. . .
Internationally acclaimed and award-winning author, Beverley Naidoo, explores new territory in this beautifully realised and moving story set in Britain's colonial past.
