JOURNEY TO JO'BURG - Beverley Naidoo


This is the story of love, commitment and the flowering of the human spirit against the background of South Africa's apartheid. Frightened that their baby sister Dineo will die, thirteen-year-old Naledi and her younger brother Tiro run away from their grandmother to Johannesburg to find their mother, who works there as a maid. Their journey illustrates at every turn the grim realities of apartheid -- the pass laws, racism and the breakdown of family life. 




A wonderful selection of poems that give inspiration and positive words about the world we live in. My favourite poem from the book is called, 'The Minister for exams'. It made me laugh out loud!
