Emigrating from Nigeria, refugees Sade and Femi find new trouble on the streets of London. Femi has gotten involved with a gang of older boys and is telling so many lies to his family, he can hardly keep his head straight.

But as he becomes more entangled with the criminal gang, violence threatens to unravel his family's hopes for the safe haven they have come so far to find.

"Web of Lies" (HarperCollins Amistad, $15.99) is the follow-up to "The Other Side of Truth," author Beverley Naidoo's acclaimed tale of Sade and Femi. Naidoo has first hand experience with finding herself far from her home; as a young student in 1965, she was exiled from South Africa, where she was imprisoned for resisting apartheid. At 22, she journeyed to England to study, where she became familiar with the stories of countless fellow expatriate Africans.

American readers will find both resonance and revelation in this story of Africans trying to acclimate to a new home, with new temptations and dangers.
