Annotation The deeply challenging experiences a pair of brothers encounter as they travel from troubled Zimbabwe to the supposed safety of South Africa are told here with tenderness and honesty. Fifteen-year-old Deo loves playing soccer, and cares for his mentally handicapped older brother, Innocent. When soldiers raze their village and kill their family, the two begin a long, difficult journey to safety. Lions, crocodiles, and soldiers are just some of the dangers they encounter. But arrival in South Africa involves prejudice and fear, and Deo finds himself struggling to survive with any means necessary. Steeped in reality for millions, this young adult novel is touching, intense, and filled with fragile hope.
