Reseña del editor:

Frightened that their baby sister will die, 13-year-old Naledi and her younger brother Tiro run away from their grandmother to Johannesburg to find their mother. On their journey they encounter the realities of aparteid - the pass laws, Bantusans, racism and the breakdown of family life.

Contraportada:

Paperback fiction: age 8-15 years

"...the more searing for its gentleness, that makes young readers ask questions we must learn to answer."
'The Guardian '

Frightened that their baby sister Dineo will die, thirteen-year-old Naledi and her younger brother Tiro run away to Johannesburg to find their mother, who works there as a maid. Their journey illustrates at every turn the grim realities of apartheid – the police, the pass laws, racism, the breaking up of families.

The opulence of the white "Madam's" house contrasts starkly with the reality that Naledi and Tiro face – that their baby sister is suffering from starvation, not an incurable disease. Their journey is also one of courage and of beginning to learn about the wider struggle for freedom. It is a story about keeping alive hope.
