by Trevor Noah
This was a very interesting book. It really gave you an insight into apartheid. The book jacket says “The compelling, inspiring, and comically subline story of one man’s coming of age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed.” There was some humor in the book but overall it was a very serious depiction of what Trevor Noah had to do to survive. The stories of his mother were very compelling, especially the last one. I would highly recommend this book. Be warned some of the incidents he describes are very disturbing.
