The Mau Mau - the name of a secret society that once struck terror into the hearts of British settlers in Kenya. An episode in history that ended in a State of Emergency, with violent and brutal acts dividing a nation.

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.
