I thought this book was very interesting. It seems very realistic in the sense that so many things seem misunderstood, and unfair. It definitely sucked me in, and allowed me to read it in one sitting!

This is about apartheid in South Africa over the years. Each story shows racism in a different year with the final story taking place in 2000.

While I think the stories are well written for a young audience, this wasn't my kind of thing. I am not a huge fan of the short story format.

Rather clever book about persecution. The author has basically written a book set in an area like Jerusalem/Palestine but doesn't mention mention either and you don't know which side the charcters are supposed to represent. Adam, Zak and Leila live as Nons in an area the Permitted people rule. Adam and Leila's mother might lose her permit to live there and if she does, she could be deported back to where she was born.
Zak does something though that backfires and could have horrible consequences for him and for Adam and Leila.
This novel makes you think. It puts you in other people's shoes and it is a little bit terrifying because it presents the "there but for the grace of God go I" scenario. It also made me think of refugees and of Trump/ Mexicans and the stupid American wall.
