Review this Book



The true story of understanding of some young people in Africa. In her book, Patricia Bamurangirwa delves into the more serious aspects of emigrating from Africa to Britain and other Western countries alike and challenges some of them face. This is a heartfelt book that aims to bring hope and confidence to those from minority backgrounds, but also to those who have not personally experienced the trials and tribulations of being from an minority ethnic group within the UK. It also serves to educate readers about the cultural and societal issues currently facing Africa – from the responsibilities that have been facing Africa for years, to the corruption and violence, to the leaders of the Western world who need to learn to be happy being rich alongside the African continent. “While the book is a true story,” explains Patricia, “all the names have been changed.” Africanism encourages every young person to be proud of their heritage, background and ethnicity, as well as the country within which they currently live. This is a book about patriotism, passion and pride. Patricia Bamurangirwa will bring readers to tears with her story, but also hopefully bring laughter too. This is ultimately a story of self-confidence and belief, which will appeal to anyone looking for a motivational and inspirational story.

That's Books

At times hard to read it was so sad but amazingly real. The people in this books story were very much devastating and heat reaching . Patricia told them beautifully . I think people should pick up or download this book.

Reading this book I saw so many of the relevant issues paguing Africa today. It does not matter where on the continent you find yourself, these issues are universal to Africa.

It is a fascinating view of living life in Africa.

The writing style might bother some people. The book is written like an African parable. Be patient with the slow moving narative. This book is a true gem. It will give the reader huge insight into the collective African mindset, and improve cross cultural insight.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read and review this book.
