Twelve-year-old Adam and his sister Leila live in the Stone City, where they are second-class citizens.
"In Adam, Leila and Zak, Naidoo has reached into the playful, creative hearts of young people living in a deeply segregated city … In their dreams and their bravery, a torch light of hope is lit by Naidoo’s lyrical prose and passed onto readers themselves living in a deeply divided world." Sita Brahmachari, author of Artichoke Hearts
