This is on the school reading list, so I felt I should read it before the school year began. Power of One is a solid book that combines autobiographical style with excellent description of apartheid South Africa. It captures the victory of the human spirit and the depth of oppression that many had to suffer through during this time. For younger readers, this is a must read.
