Rico is honest, hardworking and very angry. His Roma background marks him out as a suspect and makes it hard not to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Acutely socially and politically aware, Rico wants to make a difference, to put right some of the injustices he sees - to make someone listen. So when an enigmatic stranger offers him the chance to use his hacking skills in a peaceful but very public protest he finds it hard to refuse - never imagining the consequences.
Rico's feelings of powerlessness and marginalisation will be familiar to many young people. A powerful, accessible and revelatory novel with its finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary social and political issues.
