This short story is about Kwame's life, how he grew up in Ghana and endures the abuse from a woman. He is then rescued by Mac-White Mathew Blackteng and was able to attend a primary school.

I like the story but would've love if it was more detailed and longer, I think Kwame's life is quite interesting and would love to know more about it. I suggest expanding each experience into a full chapter. Kwame deserves to get his story written into a full novel.

Thank you for asking me to review it, wish you the best and please keep writing.

Review by: KC Sprayberry on April 22, 2013 :
Kwame's Passage is presented in memoir form, the tale of a young man growing up in Ghana. He endures abuse, ridicule, and is finally able to attend a primary school.
This story could be much better if the many experiences crammed into each chapter were done with a chapter of their own. It was difficult to pick out exactly what the book was about, and that could only be accomplished by going back and re-reading each chapter several times. The potential of this book is so high, but the reader finds him/herself distracted by constant tense changes and some descriptions contained within parenthesis. There are many tired clich├ęs utilized to express Kwame's feelings.
The story is a wonderful memoir, but it can be improved. The experiences Kwame endures need more than a paragraph or two, in order for the reader to fully appreciated, and therefore understand his position within his school and village.
