A New York Times Bestseller The host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, tells the story of growing up half black, half white in South Africa under and after apartheid in this young readers' adaptation of his bestselling adult memoir Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. BORN A CRIME IS SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING OSCAR WINNER LUPITA NYONG'O! Trevor Noah, the funny guy who hosts The Daily Show on Comedy Central, shares his remarkable story of growing up in South Africa with a black South African mother and a white European father at a time when it was against the law for a mixed-race child to exist. But he did exist--and from the beginning, the often-misbehaved Trevor used his keen smarts and humor to navigate a harsh life under a racist government. This fascinating memoir blends drama, comedy, and tragedy to depict the day-to-day trials that turned a boy into a young man. In a country where racism barred blacks from social, educational, and economic opportunity, Trevor surmounted staggering obstacles and created a promising future for himself, thanks to his mom's unwavering love and indomitable will. It's Trevor Noah: Born a Crime not only provides a fascinating and honest perspective on South Africa's racial history, but it will also astound and inspire young readers looking to improve their own lives. "Through the foreign, the familiar, and the funny, Born a Crime is a piercing reminder that every mad life--even yours--could end up a masterpiece." --JASON REYNOLDS, New York Times bestselling author "His mother raised him with an imagination and showed that there were no barriers to whatever he wanted to be. Readers will find this journey through Noah's formative years humorous and exciting." --BOOKLIST "Startling in its honesty, humor, and humility." --KIRKUS REVIEWS "For readers who will appreciate and understand how a parent's love enabled Noah to become the successful man he is now." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL… (mere)

Comedian Trevor Noah chronicles his life growing up in South Africa as a "colored person". His mother was black and his father was white. Under apartheid, it was illegal for white and non white people to marry (his parents never married) and it was illegal to be born out of a relationship between white and non white persons. Noah's mother did her best to raise her son under very difficult circumstances. She was hardworking, religious and taught Trevor to think for himself. ( )

An engaging read that weaves the history of South Africa with Trevor Noah's personal story. At times the narrative seemed to double back on each other. However, it was entertaining even when recounting shocking or harrowing events. It didn't give insight into the transition between Trevor after high school hanging in the hood to his journey to become a comedian. This book was more focused on his coming of age from youth through teen age years. Definitely worth the read. (3.75)
Marked this quote, "I was wanted. Being chosen is the greatest gift you can give to another human being." (115) ( )

*****Excellent biography, history lesson, and love letter to his family. A page-turner with lots of humor even as it tells about life in South Africa under Apartheid. I listened to the adult version of this book and couldn’t tell too much of a difference between that and this young people’s edition. But listening to Trevor Noah read it with his command of many African languages was amazing. ( )
