The Colours That Blind, Paperback / softback Book

The Colours That Blind Paperback / softback


A breathtaking teen novel set in Zimbabwe about freedom, inter-generational friendships and forgiving the past.

Fifteen-year-old Tumirai lives with his protective big brother, Mkoma in Harare, Zimbabwe.

He's the first albino kid ever to have attended his school and constantly feels like an outsider. When his brother is invited to go travelling for work, Tumirai goes to stay with their grandmother, Ambuya Thandie.

She is scarred, in more ways than one, but her memory is a treasure trove - and her stories of Zimbabwe's war for independence are a long, long way from the history Tumirai has heard before. From the author of HOPE IS OUR ONLY WING.
