Do your parents feel afraid to criticise the government, or name the politicians they don’t like? Of course not. But in Nigeria in 1995, it’s a different story. One morning, Sade and Femi’s mother is shot to death. Why? Because their father, a journalist, wrote articles criticising General Abacha’s military regime. The killers’ message is clear: the kids will be next. There’s no time to lose. They must run. So Femi and Sade flee their country in secret, all alone on a terrifying journey. But once they reach London, they will be safe – won’t they?
