Sticky lipped and heavy-eyed from drinking Tigermilk, a mix of passion fruit, milk and brandy, they flirt and use their innocent charm for fun. This summer, It’s going to happen –sex and true love with Nico and Lukas. But growing up also means pain: they witness a murder, run into some disappointments and Jameelah and her mum are deported back to Iraq.
