I honestly can't say enough good things about this book. It has been literally years since a book has had me laughing out loud like this one has! Even when I was crying, I was still laughing.
As a South African myself, this book hits very close to home. Although I grew up poor as well, I'm a white person, and I've always had that privilege. It was fascinating and horrifying listening to how it was on the other side of the tracks, so to speak.
