An innocent night out to celebrate a sixteenth birthday turns to tragedy in this powerful story of racial intolerance from award-winning author Bali Rai. It’s Arjan’s sixteenth birthday and he’s celebrating with his mates – going to see a film and then get a Nando’s.

He’s looking forward to some good banter and wondering what might happen with Jem, who’s been looking at him differently these days … But the night comes to a dramatic and violent end when Arjan is targeted by a group of racist thugs, who single him out due to the colour of his skin and the turban that he wears as a symbol of his commitment to his faith and culture. Is the life of a good friend and beloved son really worth so little?
