anyways i am not good at writing reviewsI am not good at writing reviews all I will say is I feel this book has taught me so much and I think everyone should read it or at least try the first FEW chapters because I think you will be pulled in to the gripping story of Habo the golden boy 1010 would read again How is it that a novel that illustrates a brutal practice can be one of triumph and hope How can one recommend a book about human poaching to childrenEasy Just read Tara Sullivan s GOLDEN BOY and you ll seeIn this stunning debut novel Habo is a 13 year old Tanzanian boy with albinism As such he is in constant danger because witch doctors in that country pay top dollar for body parts of such people And Habo is hunted by Mud and Stars just such a poacher Habo sourney from frightened child to a boy who takes control of his own fate and creates a new future is a stirring tale no matter what the circumstances but his specific situation ratchets up the tension in the story at the same time it horrifies the reader in her comfortable American living roomThis is Sullivan s great triumph that the story which seems so far removed from us can feel so real and immediate Instead of dwelling on gruesome details as one could or getting preachy about what needs to be done to stop these atrocities for which one could be excused Sullivan personalizes Habo s story I had not even heard of this horrific problem in Tanzania and I ve never been to Africa But I could identify with Habo all the same He feels isolated in his own family foreign in his own skin desperate to find a place of his own in the world These feelings are universal and Sullivan brings them so expertly to life that I forgot I was reading about a foreign land Habo was not ust a symbol of suffering he was a friendYoung readers are the best audience for such a book They will be motivated to help to change And they will see a little of themselves as well The next time they udge someone by his odd appearance or Er home until she sees Habo for the first time and then she is only afraid Suddenly Habo has a new word for himself Albino But they hunt Albinos in Mwanza because Albino body parts are thought to bring good luck And soon Habo is being hunted by a fearsome man with a machete To survive Habo must not only run but find a way to love and accept himself.
