I enjoyed this story, about a boy growing up and trying to make sense of the world of adults. The situation in Nairobi at the time adds to his confusion.

If you aren't familiar with Bookcrossing, take a few minutes to check out this very cool site. Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it.

Journal Entry 7 by frutz at Mersch / Miersch, Kanton Mersch Luxembourg on Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Interesting read, I knew very little about the political situation in Nairobi in the 60ties. Difficult to be a child with only adults around and with little contact to the outside world...

Journal Entry 12 by wingArvoreswing at Porto Santo (ilha), Madeira Portugal on Friday, April 26, 2019
The book is here.

I've spent my early childhood in Mozambique (Africa) and my best friend at the time was a black young man, who took care of me when my parents and siblings were away, for work and school. We lost contact with him, after we left to Portugal, during the independence war in Mozambique. Hard times. I still miss him.

I think this will be the perfect book for me. I hope I can survive it...
Thank you so much for sharing.
