Diamond Boy by Michael Williams

Oh my as we get closer to the end the books get harder and harder to put down!

Paton is your typical teenager thrown into the horror that is/was the Zimbabwe’s diamond fields.  He faces things nobody should face and shows a resiliency that is inspiring.  Finding friends and protectors in the most interesting locations, quite by luck sometimes. I don’t think that this book would be for one gender over the other, but would interest a wide range of students.  This is a well written book with a strong main character.  I will recommend it to our students!
