9780750236362: A Long Walk to Lavender Street: A Story from South Africa (Survivors)

Cape Town's District Six is a lively community of people from many different ethnic backgrounds and it's a wonderful place to live. For 13-year old Siesie Ngaba, it has always been home. But this is all about to change. It's 1966 in apartheid South Africa and the Group Areas Act will turn District Six into a whites only area. Whole families are being forced to move to segregated zones, according to the colour of their skin. Siesie's father is Xhosa and her mother is Cape Coloured. How can Siesie and her family stay together when the authorities are determined to tear them apart?
