Pepsi is a smart street kid in a South American country – his mother is dead and his father, a famous politician, has disowned him. At his side is the kidnapped Maria, who finds in Pepsi a true brother. Pepsi’s mission is to return Maria to her home – the rubbish-tip township she calls ‘Heaven’. But to do so he has to escape the sadistic policeman Caddy, whose obsession is to kill both children – as personal vendetta and also as part of his crusade to rid the city of the ‘filth’ of street children. In this hard-hitting, fantastical novel, full of unexpected twists and black humour, Adam Zameenzad gives a penetrating insight into the lives of the dispossessed in modern society. The street children’s zest for life and beauty ensures that their dramatic story, despite the brutal reality of their lives, is both uplifting and exhilarating
