Books and Bricks: Rebuilding Manyano School by Sindiwe Magona

I received an advance copy of this book via NetGalley and enjoyed the short time it takes to read this book. It is an inspirational tale, one that both the young and the old can enjoy.

The author has written this using her own experience in a similar situation, and the emotion shows. Despite not having that many pages to go through, we can immediately connect with Salmina ( who is eleven), our guide in her world as she walks through the events that change their lives.Her community is urged to come together as a whole for the mutual benefit of both themselves and the school. This is great book to initiate discussions amongst people for changes at the base level of any issue, and the fact that however small, any contribution could lead to something better.
