Untitled
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?
