A powerful story, set in the UK, of bloodbrothers who are separated by the devastating events of 9/11. Two childhood friends, Chris and Imran, grow into two young people treading very different paths in life. Mostly told through flashbacks and from both boys' perspectives with real contemporary references (eg the Bradford riots), Gibbons gets to the heart of present day events which threaten peace, community and friendships.
