Product description


A powerful depiction of family history, cultural prejudice and gang culture . . . Hard-hitting -- Lesley Agnew ― The Bookseller

Engrossing, funny and savage by turns. The lively dialogyue and the clever use of different perspectives place the novel in a very broad context and the climax is terrifying ― The School Librarian

Bali Rai deals with important and controversial issues not because it is fashionable to do so but because he is compelled to. Long may he continue! -- Jean Allen ― Carousel

This is brave and committed writing, not always subtle but passionate; it deserves a large audience -- Nicholas Tucker ― TES

Book Description

A hard-hitting novel about two teenagers facing up to the consequences of racial prejudice between asian and black communities, from award-winning author Bali Rai.
