About this deal

I guess this could be uncomfortable reading for some, but it reflects very much a perspective that was real. Her work explores themes of identity, belonging, faith, respect for difference and, ultimately, pride in all that makes each of us unique. Born in Brooklyn, he studied law at Georgetown University and spent a decade working in entertainment law with some of the top music talent in the country.

Thirty-five years later, 14-year-old Katie loves her doting father, her exclusive boarding school, and her farm with its baobab tree in rural Zimbabwe. This is adventure story as well as historical novel, a book that will grip young readers, make them understand our past and give them an insight into the lives some children across the world are living today. Until changes in Zimbabwe force her to look at her life and her family history in a completely new way.The sprawling housing project comes into view as I make the familiar left turn from Eleventh Avenue onto Sixty-First Street and climb uphill from Manhattan’s west side. The Greek playwrights had their own answers to this question; but the question, I suspect, is far older than their version of it.

Na’ima B Robert is descended from Scottish Highlanders on her father's side and the Zulu people on her mother's side.She has written several multicultural books for children, including 'The Swirling Hijaab', 'Going to Mecca' and 'Ramadan Moon'. We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate.

What the author attempts to do is to help us understand why Katie might feel that she has had her heritage ripped away from her. In Far From Home you will find funny episodes, sad ones, dramatic ones, frightening ones and happy ones. As I rise through the glistening complex on an elevator to my sixth-floor office, I am nearly broken by the weight of a secret life, of the burden that most of my colleagues cannot possibly understand. Tariro is a “daughter of the soil”, born beneath a baobab tree in the land of her ancestors, surrounded by her loving family.

She lived a happy life on her father's farm in Zimbabwe until the new revolution forced her family to give back the land they stole from the natives, and her life slowly crumbled to pieces. She is also the author of the teen novels 'From Somalia, with love', 'Boy vs Girl', 'Black Sheep' and the award-winning 'Far from Home', a historical novel set in Zimbabwe. We did have a tough time on getting some of the spread juuust right but in the end, the colors looked great. It is the mark of a superior book of short stories when each contribution is able to stand in its own bold outline, yet also go to make something more and whole.
