This book is an excellent insight to the life of a black South African boy living during Apartheid. While the story is extremely eye-opening, it is a learning tool that enables people to see beyond their own comfortable existence and into a forbidden world of oppression and secrets. The main reason I came across this book was for a political science class, specifically politics of Africa. If you are willing to expand your understanding of the conditions people are sometimes forced to endure, then this is a great book for you. Your heart will bleed for this boy and the struggle he went through.

this book will take you on an emotional ride. It is well written and paints a very good picture of the brutality and unfairness of apartheid
