"This thought-provoking book provides rare and nuanced insight into the everyday lives of young people in post-apartheid South Africa. The social complexities it unravels make it essential reading for African scholars and for those interested in international childhood studies." Allison James, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth, University of Sheffield
