Rating 8/10

Trevor Noah shares his childhood in this nonfiction novel with vital stories of his upbringing. The main importance of this memoir was the fact he was never meant to be, only because his parents, during an apartheid, had sexual relations. Trevor Noah tells about the laws that were in place to keep the races from intermingling of necessary. Noah shares his active childhood that was troublesome and involved a lot of activities to keep him entertained. Trevor Noah also recounts his school life and the crushes he has had.

As I had read this collection of stories from Trevor Noah’s childhood, I wanted to cry and laugh but mostly I had anger about the whole racism stuff. I enjoyed learning more about one of my favorite comedians especially this one. I would highly recommend to read this memoir and to watch the Trevor Noah Netflix specials too.
