Annotation

Buyisiwe feels like a stranger in the place where he grew up. He simply cannot shrug off the feeling of dread following him through the streets of London. And then he receives the terrible news. His mother can't take care of him anymore; he has to go and live with his estranged father, Themba, in Africa. Africa is not what Buyisiwe expected it to be. It is a place of great beauty and splendour, magnificent animals and terrible danger. And now a scarred, man-eating lion prowls the game reserve, waiting for his next victim. The hunt is on. Who will survive? And will Buyisiwe finally find a place where he really belongs?

Summary

Buyisiwe is forced to leave his London home to go to live with his estranged father, Themba, in South Africa. Although South Africa is full of beauty and excitement, there is also great danger that lurks beneath the surface. A scarred, man-eating lion prowls the nearby game reserve. But the lion is not the only one carrying scars. As Buyisiwe comes to terms with a new father, culture and country, will he finally find the place where he really belongs? Scarred Lions is an evocative, moving story about isolation and friendship. Nominated for the 2014 IBBY Honours Award.
