Product description

Do your parents feel afraid to criticise the government, or name the politicians they don’t like? Of course not. But in Nigeria in 1995, it’s a different story. One morning, Sade and Femi’s mother is shot to death. Why? Because their father, a journalist, wrote articles criticising General Abacha’s military regime. The killers’ message is clear: the kids will be next. There’s no time to lose. They must run. So Femi and Sade flee their country in secret, all alone on a terrifying journey. But once they reach London, they will be safe – won’t they?

  • A shocking and powerful winner of the Carnegie Medal
  • Written by the acclaimed author of Journey to Jo’burg
  • Vividly describes the difficulties faced by young refugees
  • Shows the reality of political tyranny in 1990s Nigeria

“A marvellous read … that refuels the desire for justice and freedom.” Jon Snow
