Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah was raised an outsider in South Africa during the time apartheid ended.  He was a mixed race kid raised in a black family so he did not feel at home with any one faction. His mother raised him with discipline, religion, and a desire for learning.  But Trevor still nearly took a disastrous path as he came of age in depressingly poor circumstances.  Speaking multiple languages and humor helped him survive.  This gritty memoir is as much history of S. Africa as a love letter to his mom.  Fortunately, Noah tells the stories of his coming of age with bittersweet laugh-out-loud humor.
