ABOUT THE BOOK A widow battles to keep her grandson in school. This is in a world where the odds are stacked against her.

It is an African story, steeped in intrigue and drama that has its twists and turns, revealing the clashes between urban and rural life as Tonderai fights to secure a decent future for himself and his grandmother. "A witty and insightful look at rites of passage. This book will appeal to readers of a wide range of ages and cultures." Professor Helen Goodluck, University of York.
