Mathew and Mugo.
Two boys living on the same Kenyan farm but they share an uneasy friendship. They live in a time when white and black means rich and poor - and a secret society, called the Mau Mau, want their land and freedom back.
No-one knows who to trust and Mathew and Mugo are caught in the middle. Violence and suspicion are spreading. And when a fire breaks out on Mathew's family farm, there are terrifying consequences for Mugo's family.
In one final act of betrayal, both boy's lives are changed forever.
Internationally acclaimed and award-winning author, Beverley Naidoo, explores new territory in this beautifully realized and moving story set in Britain's colonial past.
