First with your head and then with your heart . . .
So says Hoppie Groenewald, boxing champion, to a seven-year-old boy who dreams of being the welterweight champion of the world.

For the young Peekay, it is a piece of advice he will carry with him throughout his life. Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, this one small boy will come to lead all the tribes of Africa. Through enduring friendships with Hymie and Gideon, Peekay gains the strength he needs to win out. And in a final conflict with his childhood enemy, the Judge, Peekay will fight to the death for justice.

This classic story is one of the triumph of the human spirit - a spellbinding tale for all ages.

Set in South Africa during apartheid. Told through the innocent eyes of a child as he grows into a man. 'The Power of One' is a story impossible to forget. The diverse cast of characters the protagonist, Peekay, meets along his journey shape him into the remarkable man he becomes. A book everyone should read at least once (or twice). This important coming of age tale of racism, ambition and revenge will have you hanging on every word. - Remy (QBD)

I have just finished this book, great stuff, but a junior version? I am waiting on it now. I just have to see how Bryce is going to get around the language as well as the content. I know he will but how?
