A truly heart-rending story, about a young Tswana boy living in a small village in Botswana who is an albino. The unsophisticated rural community ostracises him and avoids him out of fear that they will become like him - a fate worse than death! His longing to be accepted as part of the community and his efforts to bring this about, as well as the outcome of these efforts, form the poignant main theme of this very beautiful book for teenaged readers.
