    What does a teenage girl do when she sees her beloved older brother commit a horrific crime? Should she report to her parents, or should she keep quiet? Should she confront him? All her life, Naledi has been in awe of Basi, her charming and outgoing older brother. They've shared their childhood, with its jokes and secrets, the alliances and stories about the community. Having reached thirteen, she is preparing to go to the school dance. Then she sees Basi commit an act that violates everything she believes about him. How will she live her life now?

    This coming-of-age novel brings together many social issues, peculiar not only to South Africa but elsewhere as well, in the modern world: class and race, young love and physical desire, homosexuality. In beautiful, lyrical, and intimate prose, Molope shows the dilemmas facing a young woman as she attempts to find her place in a new, multiracial, and dynamic nation emerging into the world after more than a century of racist colonialism. A world now dominated by men.

    Bespeak Audio Editions brings Canadian voices to the world with audiobook editions of some of the country's greatest works of literature, performed by Canadian actors.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Jacqui Du Toit's tone changes from bright and na�ve to stunned and pained as 13-year-old Naledi witnesses her brother's crime. That event makes it clear why she feels the need to betray him years later. Du Toit's accent reflects the novel's South African setting. You can hear young Naledi's coy grins as she details her sheltered family life, which includes running a general store, going to private schools, and living in the glow of the bright star that is her brother Basi. Du Toit creates vivid characters, and she deftly handles the many languages threaded throughout the story. Toxic masculinity lurks behind the coming-of-age antics, subtly revealing the many ways it damages women. A beautiful, suspenseful, and heartbreaking novel and performance. S.T.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine
