In 1972 in Uganda, President Idi Amin declared that all Indians have 90 days to leave the country. Thousands of people had to flee for their lives, leaving everything behind. Asha (from India) and Yesofu (African) have always been friends. But suddenly their lives change forever.
A very powerful story for mature readers.

It was a GREAT book! The book explains of Asha's feeling of being forced out of Uganda, just because she was Indian. It shows you Yesofu's mixed feelings about his now possible dreams, and his best friend, Asha having to leave. As President Amin starts to threaten his Indian friends, Yesofu really stars to hate the man. Then while fishing with Baba, he fishes a dead body, most likely a victim of Amin's soldiers.....
