The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an eye-opening and compelling book of life in Ghana told through the eyes of a young boy who finds himself trapped in a living nightmare. Thought-provoking and sinister in equal measure it will take you into the poverty driven underworld of gangland Ghana and lead you to a taut and thrilling climax.

Synopsis

Angel Boy by Bernard Ashley

Leonard runs away from home in Ghana to the historic slave fort of Elmina, where he is kidnapped by a gang of street kids and forced to work for them. A thought-provoking thriller set in an African context for young readers.
