This refreshing debut novel consists of three short stories - two of them based on true stories of orphans and vulnerable children in a poor area of South Africa; and the other a fun mystery involving orphaned sleuths. In' Pocket Rainbow', we are introduced to Ntombi as she is watching a rainbow in a raindrop. Despite the trauma of having been kicked out of the house to earn her way in life as a prostitute, she is entranced by its beauty. Will she find the help she needs when her family has rejected her?In 'The Colour of Justice', Gladys is angry. At herself. At her sister. At the world. She recently gave birth to a child, the child who was to provide her with love, but something really terrible happened. She and her friends now live with the guilt of what happened. Is there any hope for her, or justice for the wrongs done?In 'Mud in My Shoe', Themba and Elizabeth, orphan and half-orphan, discover a man who has been shot. They help him, and in so doing, discover a trail of clues that will lead them to an international criminal. They are put in considerable danger, but how will they resolve the mystery?
