Buyisiwe is forced to leave his London home to go to live with his estranged father, Themba, in South Africa. Although South Africa is full of beauty and excitement, there is also great danger that lurks beneath the surface. A scarred, man-eating lion prowls the nearby game reserve. But the lion is not the only one carrying scars. As Buyisiwe comes to terms with a new father, culture and country, will he finally find the place where he really belongs?


Scarred Lions is an evocative, moving story about isolation and friendship.
