Item description for Path To My African Eyes by Ermila Moodley...

Overview
When her father gets a new job in Buena Vista, California, fourteen-year-old Thandi Sobukwe struggles to find her true identity between her sometimes-ignorant American friends and her past South African culture.

Publishers Description
When her father is transferred from his position as a professor at a Capetown, South Africa university to Beuna Vista, Califfornia, Thandi says goodbye to friends, family and favorite places and hello to self-doubt, rejection and cultural confusion. Everything from the way she looks to the way she speaks, and even the way she thinks is questioned, mocked or simple misunderstood. She is struggling to be comfortable in her own skin. But between her "California girl" dreams, ambivalent feelings about Black American culture, and sensivityabout the ethnic background that she thinks makes her stand out too much, she doesn't seem to fit in anywhere. Thandi's facing a real dilemma: How can you be true to yourself when you're trying to discover who you are?

A powerful story  Oct 17, 2007
The author takes us into the mind of a teenager, and into contemporary teenage-American and South African culture, while developing a powerful story. The issues are universal and timeless. I could not put this book down.
