AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'My mum's skin is white, my skin is brown and I have a blue birthmark.

'Two secrets rule my life. One is something I need to know and the other is something I need to forget. They won't let me go. Some people say you can't death roll with a beast that has already survived a million years and live to tell the story.' (From the publisher's website.)
