A novel about friendship and survival, set in the cocoa plantations of West Africa.
 
Pascal’s life is like any other boy’s as he worries about his English classes and his football skills – until the day rebels come to his village and everything changes.
 
On the run with friends, Pascal finds himself at the mercy of some tough events. But it is not until he ends up working in a cocoa plantation that he realises he must endeavour to find his family and to set himself free of his enslavement.
 
Armed only with his determination, and supported by his friend, Kojo, Pascal has a difficult battle ahead of him.
