Read on June 11, 2011 — I own a copy

I recieved a copy through a first-reads giveaway.

This Thing Called The Future is a touching story about a girl growing up in South Africa caught betweeen the old ways of life and the new ways. Powers brings to life Khosi, her family, and friends as they navigate through life in a country plaqued with HIV, or "the disease of these days", in a way that had me drawn to the book wanting to see what would happen to them. She handled the social issues well, making me want to learn more. I'm so glad to have been given the chance to read this and plan to look for more of Powers' books.
A must read for everyone.
