Oh my as we get closer to the end the books get harder and harder to put down!
Paton is your typical teenager thrown into the horror that is/was the Zimbabwe’s diamond fields. He faces things nobody should face and shows a resiliency that is inspiring. Finding friends and protectors in the most interesting locations, quite by luck sometimes. I don’t think that this book would be for one gender over the other, but would interest a wide range of students. This is a well written book with a strong main character. I will recommend it to our students!
