Product Details


“Readers will be caught by the contemporary story of prejudice, both unspoken and violent, as tension builds to the climax.”— Booklist

“A moving novel that explores finding the worth of an individual as they see themselves, not as the world sees them.”—VOYA

★ ”A riveting snapshot of one Tanzanian boy who makes himself matter.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ “Readers will be haunted by Habo’s voice as he seeks a place of dignity and respect in society. An important and affecting story.”—School Library Journal, starred review

Harrowing but ultimately redemptive… the murder of Tanzania’s albinos is a real and horrific phenomenon of the past 15 years, a cold fact that makes the fictional events in ‘Golden Boy’ more moving and consequential than those in any dystopian young-adult chase-drama.”—The Wall Street Journal

Golden Boy is an amazing story of prejudice, bravery and acceptance. From the very first page, I was captivated by Habo and his struggle to find his place in the world.”—Kristin Levine, critically acclaimed author of The Lions of Little Rock

“A commandingly written debut, Golden Boy is a moving, gorgeous account of what it means to feel profoundly different when the stakes are survival itself.”—Eliot Schrefer, author of National Book Award Finalist Endangered

“Through the course of the story Habo grows from a dependent character to one who is strong enough to defend himself and others against injustice. Well-written and researched…”—LMC
