Description
In 1939, hatred took root in South Africa, where the seeds of apartheid were newly sown. There a boy called Peekay was born. He spoke the wrong language–English. He was nursed by a woman of the wrong color–black. His childhood was marked by humiliation and abandonment. Yet he vowed to survive–he would become welterweight champion of the world, he would dream heroic dreams. But his dreams were nothing compared to what awaited him. For he embarked on an epic journey, where he would learn the power of words, the power to transform lives, and the mystical power that would sustain him even when it appeared that villainy would rule the world: The Power of One.

      • content: joejoebro - Long, boring, hard to get through. I feel like this movie should be just an Adult book as I think Adults would understand it more. I know Brice Courtney is a great author, just not for teenagers. This book had a great plot but dragged on heaps and just made the enjoyment feel like a real downer. I don't like this book and the characters are so confusing it's hard to know what's going on and why. I suggest that you don't read this book, but that does not mean you don't have to. If you want a real challenge, and you think you have the smarts to read it, you should do fine. But hey, at least the movie is good.
