From the Publisher
Editors Note In 1983, at an elite boys' boarding school in Zimbabwe, thirteen-year-old English lad Robert Jacklin finds himself torn between his black roommate and the white bullies still bitter over losing power through the recent civil war.
Annotation Racial tension, bullying, and morality are the focal points of this intense young adult novel about boarding school life in the aftermath of Zimbabwe's civil war in the early 1980s. Prime Minster Robert Mugabe is in charge of the country, and 13-year-old Robert Jacklin and his family arrive during a time rife with racial unrest and white rage. Sent to Haven, an integrated boarding school, Jacko at first befriends a brilliant black boy named Nelson. But soon, he succumbs to the easy protection and friendship of Ivan, the school's ferocious bully. Although Jacko becomes adept at thuggish behavior and makes some questionable choices, when Ivan suggests something truly terrible, he must finally decide what side of morality he wants to be on.
