The Other Side of Truth
by Beverley Naidoo
Carnegie Medal Winner
Sade and Femi have to leave Nigeria hastily and in secret, their journalist father having incurred the wrath of the regime. But they will be safe once they reach Britain, won't they? 'Beverley Naidoo has struck home again, bringing together the critical themes of political oppression, exile, Africa and childhood. The Other Side of Truth has resonances of the execution of the Nigerian writer Ken Saro-Wiwa.... Not only a marvellous read but one that refuels the desire for justice and freedom within and beyond our shores.'
