The new updated edition of David Olusoga’s vital book on black British history

"Groundbreaking" – Observer

'Alex Wheatle writes from a place of honesty and passion with the full knowledge and understanding that change can only happen through words and actions' - Steve McQueen

Set in South London in the 1980s, Brenton Brown is a 16-year-old mixed race youth who has lived in a children's home all his life. He has never met his mother and is haunted by her loss.

The best thing happens: Brenton is reunited with his mother, Cynthia. And then the worst: he falls in love with his beautiful half-sister, Juliet. At the same time Brenton meets his nemesis in the shape of Terry Flynn, a killer who scars him for life. Brenton seeks revenge. All this leads to an explosive climax with the troubled teenager struggling to hold on to his sanity.

In this updated version of the prize-winning original, Alex Wheatle entertains us with his colourful descriptions of South London street life as he tracks a pair of adolescent males on the loose.
