This is the story of love, commitment and the flowering of the human spirit against the background of South Africa's apartheid. Frightened that their baby sister Dineo will die, thirteen-year-old Naledi and her younger brother Tiro run away from their grandmother to Johannesburg to find their mother, who works there as a maid. Their journey illustrates at every turn the grim realities of apartheid GÇô the pass laws, bantustans, racism, the breakdown of family life.The opulence of the white GÇ£Madam'sGÇ¥ house contrasts starkly with the reality that Naledi and Tiro face GÇô that their baby sister is suffering from starvation, not an incurable disease.This edition of Beverley Naidoo's classic story includes a special GÇ£Why You'll Love This BookGÇ¥ introduction by Michael Rosen, the Children's Laureate.
