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

    This book is very interesting. This is because, I really liked the message ; about immigrants and ect.. But it wasn’t the wow factor for me so not particularly my sort of book. But if your studying about history and migration I definalty recommend this book. Because you get a real glimpse of life for Nigeria immgrints , not only them actually Africa. So Yeah good book read it not much people want to read it ! =]
