This beautiful HarperCollins Children's Modern Classics edition is perfect for every bookshelf.

Naledi and Tiro are frightened. Children are dying in their village and their baby sister might be next. There is only one thing left for them to do, and there is only one place left for them to go.
Running away from their grandmother, the three siblings begin the long journey to find their mother in Johannesburg. At each turn they face the grim realities of apartheid - the pass laws, Bantustans, racism and injustices.
Originally banned upon its publication by South Africa's apartheid government, Beverley Naidoo's novel still resonates with its universal story of love, commitment and the flowering of the human spirit.
