Christophe's been given the job of looking after the new boy in his class. But Armel's surly attitude makes him very difficult to be friends with.
And when he realises that there is more to Armel's hostility than meets the eye, Christophe is suddenly forced to make painful discoveries about the history of the country he once called home - Rwanda.
Can Christophe and Armel leave the past alone? Or will the horrible events in their history bubble over into the present?
A compelling and moving story about forgiveness and reconcilation. It discusses the horrifying recent history of Rwanda and the Congo, and the fall-out for immigrant children living in far from home.
