About the Book

The horrific real-life cost of fast fashion is exposed in this gripping tale of survival from bestselling author Steve Cole.

The horrific real-life cost of fast fashion is exposed in this gripping tale of survival from bestselling author Steve Cole.

When twelve-year-old Hanh is offered a job as a shop assistant in Hanoi, she sees it as a chance to earn money to send back to her family living in poverty in rural Vietnam. But on her arrival in the city, she soon learns that the job offer was a lie and finds herself working in virtual slavery in an illegal garment factory.

Life in this sweatshop is a daily hell of long hours, little rest, poor food and regular violence. Hanh is desperate to escape, but when an opportunity arises will she be able to find the courage to take a dangerous chance?

Critical Praise

"Another brilliant written, hard-hitting accessible text … serves as a reminder that behind every piece of cheap clothing is a story of a life lived in fear, despair and struggle. A thought-provoking and timely read for young people." – Little Library on The Green, blog

"A no holds barred look at the true cost of the fast-fashion industry, Cole shines a light on the horrific conditions garment workers experience in the name of high-street fashion. A gripping, gritty and sometimes upsetting read." – Children's Books Ireland
