Out of Shadows

by Jason Wallace
£6.99   paperback  Andersen Press Ltd (2010)

Out of Shadows by Jason Wallace If I stood you in front of a man, pressed a gun into your palm and told you to squeeze the trigger, would you do it?
 
No, sir, no way!
 
What if I then told you wed gone back in time and his name was Adolf Hitler? Would you do it then?

 
Zimbabwe, 1980s
 
The war is over, independence has been won and Robert Mugabe has come to power offering hope, land and freedom to black Africans. It is the end of the Old Way and the start of a promising new era.
 
For Robert Jacklin, its all new: new continent, new country, new school. And very quickly he learns that for some of his classmates, the sound of guns is still loud, and their battles rage on...white boys who want their old country back, not this new black African government.
 
Boys like Ivan.
 
Clever, cunning Ivan.
 
For him, there is still one last battle to fight, and hes taking it right to the very top.

"An extraordinary coming-of-age novel...a startlingly original ...Charting the change from childhood to adulthood against growing political discord gives the novel a sense of urgency, and the book's intensity, drama and pace leaves a lasting impact. "
