This thought-provoking novel about a young boy with a huge heart explores the imbalance of a world in which it takes a Western football star a mere one hundred seconds to earn the monthly wage of the child labourers who make his boots.

Themes of being proud of who you are, holding onto hope, and the importance of friendship and family bonds are explored with depth, compassion, and moments of heartfelt humour, against a keenly-evoked backdrop of global socioeconomic inequalities.
