It seems Georgie is no closer to achieving her dreams after all, but something Ellie says in one of her letters gives her an idea...Lisa Joyal has her finger on the pulse of the active socially-committed lifestyle of many of today's youth. In Swahili for Beginners, she gives her readers a way to see themselves in the wider context of a changing world.Críticas:
"Swahili for Beginners is an informative story about the uncertainties, changes, dreams and hopes of adolescence; the sadness and adjustments surrounding divorce; the dangers, confusions, and grief that come with anorexia; the importance of friendship and adventure; and the resilience of families. But first and foremost, this novel sheds light on social issues prevalent all over Africa, and on the power our youth have to look beyond their own circumstances and change the lives of others, either at home or a world away."
