Abstract:

"The slums, a teenager who has seen enough violence to last a lifetime and who has been inexorably drawn into the world of the gangsters who rule his broken city: men who dole out money with one hand and death with the other.But Shorty has a secret: a flame of revenge that burns inside him, fuelling his determination to find his beloved twin sister, stolen from him five years ago. In the darkness the lines between the present and the past begin to blur and, as Shorty fights for life, his struggle becomes part of a two-hundred-year-old story - a story of courage and betrayal, of freedom and of hope. Shorty may not be quite as alone as he believes..."

Terwijl Shorty onder de restanten van een ziekenhuis ligt na de aardbeving in Haïti, denkt hij terug aan de gebeurtenissen die ertoe leidden dat hij daar terechtkwam. Vanaf ca. 15 jaar.
