Would others recommend for 8th graders? At the end of 8th grade. There's violence and molestation, but it's all off page for the most part from what I recall.

A touching and very descriptive true story of an English family living in Africa. The author writes quite openly about her family and the tragedies they face.

Milawi is mis spelled! it should be Malawi

Bare faced look at how outsiders fall in love with their adopted country and yet maintain their separateness. Highly recommended, fascinating read, makes you want to travel to Africa despite the dirt, poverty, bugs and war, because of the beauty, the teeming life and scent of it all.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. Highly reccommended!

An interesting look at life in southern Africa in the 70s and 80s, from a white person's perspective (the author grew up there). Told with no apology or politeness, which may offend people who aren't familiar with the life of Africa. It's very raw and down-to-earth! Most interesting to me was getting it from a child's perspective. This is more about the family and the person than about the bigger picture, yet you get a clear portrait of the bigger picture.

Changes your mind about the poetry of Africa
