An unusual story of a twelve year old boy who moves to Liberia with his family in 1982 when his father gets a posting to the American embassy there. Determined to become less anxious and more popular, he tries to do some of the things his older brother enjoys, but his encounters with a deadly black mamba soon lead him down a different path.
