Journey to Jo’Burg Paperback / softback
Part of the HarperCollins Children’s Modern Classics series
Paperback / softback
This is the story of love, commitment and the flowering of the human spirit against the background of South Africaâ€™s apartheid. Frightened that their baby sister Dineo will die, thirteen-year-old Naledi and her younger brother Tiro run away from their grandmother to Johannesburg to find their mother, who works there as a maid.
Their journey illustrates at every turn the grim realities of apartheid â€“ the pass laws, bantustans, racism, the breakdown of family life. The opulence of the white â€œMadamâ€™sâ€ house contrasts starkly with the reality that Naledi and Tiro face â€“ that their baby sister is suffering from starvation, not an incurable disease. This edition of Beverley Naidooâ€™s classic story includes a special â€œWhy Youâ€™ll Love This Bookâ€ introduction by Michael Rosen, former Childrenâ€™s Laureate.
