What does their world look and feel like - and how will they shape our country in the future? How will the ambitious and fiercely intelligent Perin, who refuses to see his wheelchair as a barrier to success, fare as he prepares to meet the harsher world beyond the school gates? Has Anthony, narrowly reprieved from exclusion, changed sufficiently to win a university place? As a secular refugee from Islamic fundamentalism, will Ruhi find her feet in a class in which most pupils are committed Muslims, Christians or Hindus? This searing book goes to the heart of key debates about education, and reaches surprising conclusions - it is a timely antidote to newspaper headlines about recalcitrant teenagers. Seven Kings reveals todays young people, in all their energy and uncertainty.
