Wow incredible I fell in love with Peekay even before he was five years old starting in South Africa when he shares of being nursed from his lovely black nanny before being sent to boarding school although we follow him from age 5 to 20 from the late 1930 s to mid 40 sOur oldest daughter attended a boarding High School in Michigan for a short time an academicarts school The family separation was painful I can t begin to imagine sending a 5 year old away to a boarding school even in the best of conditionsAnd the fact that this story is inspired by the authors real lifefor me this is one of the most wrenching parts of the entire bookbeing sent away from his family at age 5 from love he was receiving to hatred he was walking into Peekay is bullied and abused almost immediately upon arrival as a 5 year old at his boarding school He s the youngest child in the school Missing the comfort of his Black nanny Peekay is English and white who would soothe his hurtsmissing his mother who was sent away due to a nervous breakdown Peekay was the first live example of the congenital hate they carried for his kind The Boer War had created great malevolent feelings against the English who were called the rooineks It was a hate that had entered the Afrikaner bloodstream and pocked the hearts and minds of the next generation Given that Peekay spoke English he pronounced sentences that killed their grandfathers and grandmothers to the world s first concentration camps Little Peekay had no advance warning that he was wicked before coming to the school One of the other kids called Judge abused Peekey regularly Peekay even made a deal with him to do the Judge s homework and make sure he didn t fail but he still continues to abuse him really tortured him We see how Peekay begins to survive horrific conditions at such a young tender age Peekay says One thing got to them than anything else They could make me cry Even the Judge with all of the fear he could provoke could not make me cry I suspect they even began to admire me a bit Many as them brothers my age at home and they knew how easy it is for a five year old to cry In fact I had turned six but nobody had told me so in my head I was still five Not being able to cry was the hardest part for me as well Crying can t be a good camouflage In truth my willpower had very little to do with my resolve never to cry I had learned a special trick and in the process had somehow lost the knack of turning on the tap Peekay is a diamond in the roughan inspiring character He s smart open minded and doesn t have an ounce of bitterness or hatred in him He develops meaningful friendships with teachers and mentors who teach him to read He meets a healer and a boxer We learn a tremendous amount about boxing We also learn a lot about the history of South Africa through the eyes of a child The themes of discrimination were well defined by the author the Boers vs the English South Africans vs the Germans the Jews vs the Germans white Africans vs the Black Africans Violence is graphic so be warned It s a cruel and beautiful world we live in
