When Kaninda survives a brutal attack on his village in East Africa he joins the rebel army, where he's trained to carry weapons, and to use them.
But aid workers take him to London where he fetches up in a comprehensive school. Clan and tribal conflicts are everywhere, and on the streets its estate versus estate, urban tribe versus urban tribe.
All Kaninda wants is to get back to his own war and take revenge on his enemies. But together with Laura Rose, the daughter of his new family, he is drawn into a dangerous local conflict that is spiralling out of control.
