A novel by

 
 
At the height of South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle, a boy must face life decisions that test what he believes - and call for no turning back.

South Africa, 1976. Joshua lives with his mother in the maid's room, in the backyard of their wealthy white employers' house in the city by the sea. He doesn't quite understand the events going on around him. But when he rescues a stranger and riots begin to sweep the country, Joshua has to face the world beneath - the world deep inside him - to make heartbreaking choices that will change his life forever. Genuine and quietly unflinching, this beautifully nuanced novel from a veteran journalist captures a child's-eye view of the struggle that shaped a nation and riveted the world.
