This is a really interesting book. Living in Africa and working with refugee organisations, it's inescapable that many young people in economically developing countries believe that all of their problems could be fixed if they just made it to Europe or America. This is an incredibly honest, and at times very humorous, book written by a man who grew up as a refugee in Burundi and then spent around 18 years in America. It busts the myth that life in the West is easy, and it looks at the complex issues of social isolation and self-identity that come with a move of that magnitude. It also looks at the author's decision to return to Africa, and highlights the opportunities that are emerging in business and social enterprise on the continent. It's a really thought-provoking, heartfelt read.
