LOVE or DREAMS
5 Stars for me! Extremely invigorating! A fast & Easy Read I really enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. The journey of an ambitious young boy, James, who risks his life for the future_Love and_Dreams. While reading the book I felt Anxiety & Fear . How the story/series of events developed across the chapters! at some point the plots got darker than expected. There were moments I had a perfect mixture of everything: funny, sad, witty, scary, saudade, pleased, wounded! All sorts of emotions! Isaac, James & Mzee Kazuu, stood out for me .The Braveness, resilient and determination. However, there are definitely deep questions around our CULTURE(African Culture) that rose across the chapters. How well do we understand/know our CULTURE? Favorite Excerpt: "Don't allow life's obstacles to bring you down. And when they do bring you down, and you find yourself lost, Crawl and Stand up. Don't ever stay down. Keep moving. Pg. 211. Overall, I liked this read. I raced to the end. Was desperately sad to have finished reading it. This is an incredible story that is absolutely well worth the read. Highly recommended.

The potency of determination
James is a young man who overcomes all obstacles thrown his way to ensure he achieves his dream of going to America while still maintaining his relationship with his girlfriend, Janny. The lad, James, is thrown into a tumultuous situation where he has no option but to fight through if he is to achieve his dreams. For motivation into believing you can achieve all you wish without losing yourself, your roots, your heritage, this right here is the read for you. The book is both inspiring and captivating. I'd recommend it to readers of all ages, whether as a fun read or for school work. It is both attention grabbing, articulately written, and doesn't lose its storyline.
