Twelve-year old Zak has to deal with growing up in WWII-era Singapore in this coming-of-age tale.
Life is bustling on Bussorah Street, and yet, Zak is feeling restless. All he wants is to be a sepak raga trainer, but his bapak insists he learns the family trade of tailoring. He is also dreading something on the horizon—the circumcision ritual, a rite of passage all Muslim boys must take to become a man... and Zak definitely isn’t ready to be a grown-up! But when the war arrives on the street, it shakes up Zak’s world at the core, and it is through immense love and loss that he comes into his own.
