The Sunshine Book Club: 'Born A Crime' by Trevor Noah [July]

This July The Sunshine Book Club is reading Trevor Noah's "Born A Crime". 

It's been a long time since we did a piece on what we are reading right now. After last month meeting, Noah's book was nominated and won the book of choice for July.

Here's a breakdown of the book: 

Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother—his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life.
