Description

City Boy

Jan Michael

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

May 18, 2009

Set in contemporary Malawi, a poignant account of an orphaned boy's transition from city life to village life. Sam's widowed mother has died from "the Disease, " and Sam is claimed by his aunt Mercy, who lives in the small African village where Sam's mother was born and raised. The gap between Sam's life in the city, where he had his own room, attended private school, and used a computer, and his new life in the dirt-floored one-room hut, which he is to share with his aunt and cousins, is vast beyond imagining. Grief, loneliness, and the absence of everything familiar make for a rocky transition to a traditional culture where possessions count for little and everyone is expected to do his or her share.
