Georgie's dad, George Smith is a highly controversial politician whose message is to get rid of non-white people from London's East End.
Everyone assumes Georgie shares his father's views, even his father.
But while he loves his dad, he's really not sure what he thinks. And then he begins to hear a voice in his head, the voice of a Muslim girl called Fatima ...Meanwhile Fatima is also contacting other children in difficult situations.
When an attempt is made to kill George Smith he responds by planning a repeat of the historical Battle of Cable Street when Fascists demonstrating against Jewish immigrants confronted local people.
How can the mysterious Fatima and her gang stop Smith, and which side will Georgie be on?
By the acclaimed author of Ghostscape, this gripping story is a 'Heroes' for children dealing with issues of racism and immigration.
