This book is amazing in terms of the writing style and the truth that lies between history. It is an fascinating book of true events that happened in South Africa. Living in America, i don't really know much about the history of Africa. Until after i read this book, i realized that there is so much poverty going on in countries. The humiliations of human beings just shocks me and makes me wonder how this could be happening in the world. Thinking out of the box, this book actually teaches me a lesson that we should be grateful for what we have and be satisfied with whatever we are gifted in life because there could be many people in this world that doesn't have this opportunity to be gifted positive things. For example, in this book, it is a strong example of how people in another country are suffering while we are enjoying our life.
