Born a Crime

Stories From a South African Childhood
Jan 12, 2021rosevazquez1 rated this title 5 out of 5 stars
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah; this novel is composed of short stories about Trevor Noah’s life. He has lived a very eventful life, and some of these stories may shock you. He talked about his life experiences in Africa, growing up of mixed race and not knowing where he exactly fit in society. Having born in his country during Apartheid, he and his family ran the risk in the society they live just for being alive and of mixed race. I personally really like this novel. I thought it was very interesting since everything was based on true events. Even though there are some characters in this book that I didn't care for being abusive and toxic, I overall recommend this book as a great read. I believe the age range should be between 12-17 years. 5/5 star rating
