It s been a while since I was so deeply moved by a novel I ve read a lot of good books but few as emotionally intense this one The narrator a Zimbabwean teenager goes from an ordinary life in which he attends high school runs on the cross country team and is getting involved with a girl for the first time to the diamond mines of Marange at the instigation of his stepmother She shows contempt for Patson s father a teacher and his uiet intellectual ways Her demand to move the family in search of wealth is based on The Great Marange Diamond Rush and the brutal actions of President Robert Mugabe s soldiers are also based on actual events After you read this when you hear the phrase blood diamonds you ll know what it means if you didn t already and when you hear the phrase conflict free diamonds you ll understand why that matters Patson s transformation from regular kid to diamond miner and beyond are told in his narration his journal entries and his occasional text messages to his almost girlfriend Sheena He s a believable hero neither too perfect nor too weak His relationships with his father his remembered mother his little sister his fellow child miners and the Congolese stranger and eventual ally Boubacar are shown in depth The story is at times an adventure at times a nightmare but always grounded in love Characters go to great lengths to help each other No one goes it alone The story is African in that way It s not about how one person survives and wins but how people struggle together I found Patson s strengths and limitations realistic for a teenaged boy in extraordinarily difficult circumstances It takes him time to accept his father s fate He never seems able to articulate to himself what might have happened to his sister Still he s resilient in the face of losses few of us can imagine and capable of hopeThe end is beautiful the ceremony and then the note but don t skip ahead to see why Let it dawn on you in its fullness as the completion of an extraordinary story This is labeled as Young Adult for ages twelve and up but that doesn t make it light reading I normally avoid YA books In this case I never felt as if I was reading oneI acuired this book as an Advance Reading Copy at the Best of Santa Fe Block Party at the Railyard in July Collected Works Bookstore was giving away ARCs to any booklover in Santa Fe who got to their table before the books ran out
