Summary
"In the final years of South Africa's Apartheid era, an unlikely trio--a sheltered white rugby player, a black farmworker's son, and an Indian shopkeeper's daughter--discover the consequences of knowing the truth and having the courage to speak it. Halley's Comet is the coming-of-age story of Pete de Lange, a white 16-year-old schoolboy, set in small-town South Africa in 1986. Pete lives a relatively sheltered life, primarily concerned with girls and rugby-- until one January night changes everything. Thrust together with two complete strangers--Petrus, a black farmworker's son and Sarita, an Indian shopkeeper's daughter--the trio find themselves running for their lives from the vicious Rudie, whose actions will ripple far beyond that fateful night. This era-defying friendship--sparked by a shared secret-- challenges everything Pete thought he knew and believed. And when anti-Apartheid revolutionaries set their sights on the town, it will change the course of the three young people's lives forever. Halley's Comet is a story of friendship, love, change, taking chances, hope, a comet, and some pretty cool 80s music."--Amazon
