Jong Joe en Anna (albei 13) raak hartstogtelik verlief op mekaar. Maar dan tree die lewe tussenbeide en word hulle teen hul sin van mekaar geskei.

Sal hulle die lewe se baie hindernisse kan oorkom, en sal hulle ooit weer saam kan wees?

Dit is ’n storie oor lewe, grootword, regte en verkeerde keuses maak, vashou aan dit waarin jy glo, ouerskap en hantering van die dood. Wat egter die sterkste uitstaan, is die liefde.

Hierdie storie verken die moeilikhede wat tieners en studente daagliks in die gesig staar en leer ook jonk en oud om in liefde te glo ten spyte van hartseer.

"We came out demonstrating on a cold, wintry morning. But the authorities wouldn't have it. They set police dogs on us. They panel-beat us with batons. They sprayed us with teargas. They came out shooting. Army tanks roared down the streets like angry hippos. The contest was too uneven. We retreated in panic, leaving the ground strewn with casualties from both sides. We couldn't match them stone to bullet." This important historical novel, fi rst published in 1982 and later banned by the apartheid regime, is now available for literature study at school. It tells, with piercing authenticity, the story of the 1976 Soweto uprising. Mzamane has created a set of characters whose courage, humour and imperfections fi ll the pages of this book and carry the reader forward on the rising tide of resistance. The novel is accompanied by notes and classroom activities.
