Mine - The perfect gift for a YA obsessed Teen or Adult
rudi W onReviewed by
But there are challenged to their love - both are from less than stable homes, and Kay and Fin have the kind of emotional baggage that most adults couldn't live through. Mine details the messy, all encompassing passion that is young love in Cape Town.
South African writer, Sally Partridge creates a real sense of who these two flawed teens are, while challenging our ideas what we think a teen love story should be all the way to the end.
Read Mine. It's the best YA book from a South African writer since forever.
