Burn My Heart

by Beverley Naidoo

Burn My Heart by Beverley Naidoo Mathew and Mugo.
 
Two boys living on the same Kenyan farm but they share an uneasy friendship. They live in a time when white and black means rich and poor - and a secret society, called the Mau Mau, want their land and freedom back.
 
No-one knows who to trust and Mathew and Mugo are caught in the middle. Violence and suspicion are spreading. And when a fire breaks out on Mathew's family farm, there are terrifying consequences for Mugo's family.
 
In one final act of betrayal, both boy's lives are changed forever.
 
Internationally acclaimed and award-winning author, Beverley Naidoo, explores new territory in this beautifully realized and moving story set in Britain's colonial past.
