Born a Crime

by Trevor Noah

Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother—his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life.

This book is as hilarious as it is poignant and intelligent. It's a story of how language, community, and family define us and how we define ourselves. PS I love Trevor, but it's his mom that steals the show in this one.
