190pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2016
A teenage novel about twins from Manenberg on the Cape Flats who dream of a life outside of poverty.
"In lyrical prose, award-winning author and master storyteller Dianne Case takes us from the unforgiving streets of Manenberg to the tranquility of the most beautiful garden in Goodwood, as we follow the twins Adam and Jasmine on their quest for identity and truth. Like 'Love, David', 'The Rules' is set to become a South African classic. This is a compelling read, memorable way beyond the last pages. Does it leave you with hope for our country? You decide." Jean Williams, Executive Director Biblionef South Africa
Diane Case is also the author of "92 Queen's Road" and "Albatross Winter". The novel "Love, David" won the Young Africa Award.
