Born a Crime
Author: Trevor Noah
Noah‘s memoir will inspire the would-be achievers
Adapted for young readers from his number one South African and New York Times bestseller, Noah’s book is a compelling memoir that blends drama, comedy and tragedy to depict the day-today trials that turned a boy into a young man.
During the apartheid era, when racism barred blacks from social, educational and economic opportunities, Noah surmounted staggering obstacles and created a promising future for himself, thanks to his mom’s unwavering love and indomitable will.
Trevor Noah: Born a Crime not only provides a fascinating and honest perspective of South Africa’s racial history, but will also astound and inspire young readers looking to improve their own lives.

Suspenseful and thrilling
This is the follow-up to Bulbring’s bestselling novel, The Mark, which was also a grade 10 English set work.
In The Reject, Juliet Seven is waiting on a sea craft offshore from war-torn Mangeria, hoping that her beloved Nicolas will soon join her. Instead, the boat is pirated by a Reject boy stinking of rot and oil.
As suspenseful and thrilling as her previous work, Bulbring has built utterly credible worlds and characters in The Reject.
