talking about this book on her blog,author Julia North says: "As all good characters should, Lieutenant Hotshot (Modetse) came to life and told his own story. The seeds of his story came when I watched a Ross Kemp programme on television relating to ‘glue kids’ in Kenya. I was very moved by the clip which showed Ross speaking to street children who eked out meagre lives on the rubbish tips of Nairobi and escaped the hardship by sniffing glue."
With 4.9 stars as the average Amazon review,it's a powerful tale that has struck home with readers.
