“Gripping, fast-paced, no holds barred. This story about life on the streets of Braamfontein is uncompromising in its depiction of the drugs, sex and gang rivarly that often threatens to consume all of those involved. It also reminds us of how the quests for a better life elsewhere often ends in unmitigated tragedy and how a country’s dysfunction feeds this desperation.” – Nze Sylva Ifedigbo, Author of Believers and Hustlers
