#PBwkendread Review: The Other Side

The Other Side of Truth - Beverley Naidoo

So I wanted to read something outside of my normal reading genre. I looked around the library and saw this book kind of skimmed the blurb and grabbed it. It was not as in depth as I assumed it would have been. It just didn't pull to me like I wanted, but it was a decent read something that I am glad I got to read. It broke my heart to see how Sade was bullied in school. We are following Sade and her young brother as they are smuggled into London to escape what has happened to their family. We see how they are trying to adapt to their new life while worrying about their dad and if he is ever going to come to them. 

I think this book is good for the kids maybe 6th on up as it isn't graphic in any way and it makes you think about what others are going through in other parts of the world with wars. 

One quote I really liked was "Truth keeps the hand cleaner than soap." I feel like this quote is something that really speaks and something that people should think about.
