Born A Crime by Trevor Noah is the autobiography of Trevor Noah. He describes his early life from his contraception to his adulthood. Three significant parental figures in Trevor’s life are his African American mother who tries to ensure that her son is not trapped by apartheid and grows up to be a respectable man, his abusive step-father, and his white father whom Trevor is separated from because of the system of apartheid. I loved this book because Trevor Noah makes hilarious jokes, provides thought-provoking commentary, and shows the intriguing way that Trevor’s skin color affects his life as a colored person. I would recommend this book for teenagers and adults, but not for children because there are a few parts that are inappropriate for children.
