I received this book as part of a goodreads giveaway...thank you! I really enjoyed this book. It is an honest and often heartbreaking story of a young girl growing up in South Africa. We learn that Khosi has many of the same pressures as a typical young adult (boys, college plans), and yet she also lives in a world where AIDS is an epidemic. She struggles with old ways and traditions vs. new thoughts and ideas. It's a gripping story, and one that kept me interested until the end.

I have given it to my daughter (who is a young adult!) to read next, and am confident that she will enjoy it as well!
