Summary

Frightened that their baby sister Dineo will die, thirteen-year-old Naledi and her younger brother Tiro run away from their grandmother to Johannesburg to find their mother, who works there as a maid.

Their journey illustrates at every turn the grim realities of apartheid-the pass laws, bantustans, racism, the breakdown of family life.

The opulence of the white "Madam's" house contrasts starkly with the reality that Naledi and Tiro face-that their baby sister is suffering from starvation, not an incurable disease.
