An outstanding portrayal of life in the townships of South Africa. Although the story takes place in the time of apartheid, the realities of township living and familial pressures and conflicts have not changed. The characters are completely believable and convey the day to day desperation that is still evident today. If you want to know more about the realities modern South Africa, this book is a must!

This is a well-written and interesting novel set in an African 'township' near Johannessburg in the 1980s during the 'height' of apartheid. It is narrated by a teeneage girl, Tihelo, who watches life declining around her as members of the township engage in violent opposition to the apartheid government and are wickedly punished by the regimes vindictive and sadistic police force. Tihelo, who has a far paler complexion than those around her including her mother and sister, worries about her paleness and also becomes involved in revolutionary activities. Eventually, she is arrested and tortured. Near the end of the book, she learns something that surprises her very much.

This novel provides a frighteningly realistic glimpse into what life under apartheid was like for 'black' South Africans, and is well worth reading.
