The publisher recommends this book for ages 10 and up. I would agree that a mature and articulate 10 year could read this book. Sacks's protagonist begins as a self absorbed child, but emerges as a more aware and politically conscious teenager. Some readers may believe it to be sexually explicit, however, I would contend that the book artfully opens up a dialogue for pre teens and emerging teenagers about peer pressure, their presence in this world, and their obligation as a global citizen.
I have to do this book for school, for a project, and I am here to complain that when you read it, you will fall asleep. Those people in the book are incredably boring. The author of this book should write better. HATE IT!
This book really makes you see how prejudice issues in South Africa were very similar to the the prejudice issues in the United States in the 1950s and the early 1960s. There were rights denied to the black people but also the jewish people in this book. This story is personal explanation of a girl living during a time of major prejudices.
I am 13 and I read this book on my own time. I thought it wasn't really bad but it was really slow and really boring at some parts. The overall story is good. But it takes forever for them to tell you what the storyline is I would say that this is a good book if you want to hear a story about racism.
