Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, by Trevor Noah

adventurous challenging emotional funny informative inspiring reflective tense fast-paced


This is hands down the best book I've read this year. This book should be read by everyone. I loved that it was a mix of personal stories of growing up in apartheid south Africa as well as the history of apartheid. This is truly an homage to Trevor's incredibly resilient mother who raises him as a single mom for a lot of his life. Trevor presents the facts without it feeling too traumatic. What I mean is that he manages to tell these stories in a way that make it so anyone can read it without becoming too triggered by anything.
