Sobering accounts, though fictional, paint ugly pictures of hatred, injustice, and disrespect for humanity. Hope glimmers, though faintly, with each successive tale as time passes and courage grows and perseverance becomes the dominating color in this painfully segregated nation. Extremely powerful and moving.
Publisher Summary
This unique collection of stories by native South African and Carnegie Medalist Beverley Naidoo is about young people's choices in a beautiful country made ugly by injustice. Each story is set in a different decade during the last half of the 20th century and into the 21st, and features fictional characters caught up in very real events in South Africa.
