Description

It's 1955 in Kenya, and Thuo is fifteen. His country is at war with the British. Thuo hates his brother, Kungu, because Kungu supports the freedom-fighting Mau Mau, who have brought so much suffering on his family. But will Thuo help Kungu, his Mau Mau brother, in the time of Kungu's greatest need?

 

Part of the new Fresh Shades series, this is a shorter version of the original book. The Sharp Shades stories are illustrated and have simpler language and a larger font than the original book. They are  perfect for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style.
