How does an intelligent young boy from the English Midlands make sense of his new South African homeland during the confusing days of the late 1960s? How does he negotiate his way through a foreign land with confusing politics, a new language and an education system that refuses to understand him? The answer to these questions is: one human encounter at a time. As Richard experiences the people, situations, languages and prejudices of South Africa and processes life lessons from his own unique perspective, he takes the young reader to curious, fascinating, mysterious and confusing places as he and his two special friends, Mario and Manuel, become teenagers. This book is the first of six annual snapshots from the life of Richard, following him from his middle childhood to his early adult life with a sensitivity and compassion rarely seen in youth fiction. Richard's insights are expressed in a way that pre-teens and young adolescents - boys in particular - will be able to identify
