The title of this great, funny memoir is no exaggeration. Under South African apartheid law, it was illegal for any black person to have a relationship with a white person. Trevor Noah’s mother is black; his father, white. The minute he was born, he became evidence of a crime. This is the story of growing up under apartheid rule, and the period shortly after. This is a witty, real look into the world of apartheid and what it was like growing up in between two groups, neither of which fully accepts you.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award 2017-2018)
