When things become unbearable at home, twelve-year-old Sipho escapes to Johannesburg, where he has heard that gangs of children live on the streets. Surviving hunger and the bitter-cold winter nights is hard enough -- but learning who to trust in the "new" South Africa proves even more difficult.
Based on real-life stories of young black South Africans living on the streets, this powerful novel evokes the difficulties of changing from an old society to a new one where all young people can live in peace and safety.
