About This Book

Life was tough enough for Nok and his sister Ning after their father walked out, leaving their mother to raise them alone in a Bangkok slum, yet they made ends meet. But when she suddenly falls sick and dies, the children have no option but to find their own way in this world. The two siblings end up on the streets of Bangkok, and learn to fend for themselves and to resist the temptations of vice and drugs and the trap of child prostitution.
