Abstract:
"A touching yet unsentimental story about growing up in Singapore seen through the eyes of Yong, a 12-year old, who experiences the paradoxes of life even if he doesn’t always understand everything. Between the rigorous demands of school and taking care of his younger sibling, Yong deals with the death of Ah Por, upheavals in his family, run-ins with the neighbourhood gang leader, infatuation and finally, the end of a friendship. Set in a Housing Development Board (HDB) estate, Gone Case is a coming-of-age story with many memorable moments."--Back cover.
