A moving story about the effects of apartheid in 1960s Johannesburg is related in this genuine novel told from the perspective of a 13-year-old boy. Stephen finds himself in an uncomfortable position when his parents become political prisoners due to their social convictions. Obliged to respect the importance of their beliefs despite the repercussions, Stephen's coming of age mirrors the struggle of those seeking freedom from apartheid. This story gives a frank, unglamous account of the moods, fights, love, and understanding that keeps the family—and a social movement—on the brink of unity and dissolution.

Book Description Jacana Media (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Lucky Fish! is a novel set in Johannesburg during the 1960s and is told by a 13-year old boy named Stephen. This account of Stephen s life during the apartheid regime, when his parents, Ivor and Lucy, became political prisoners at the same time, is remarkable for its authenticity and freshness. Stephen comes of age in unique and difficult circumstances but can understand his parents motives and respects them for upholding their beliefs and for the courage of their actions. The reality of the family s difficulties is never glamorised, giving the reader a sense of how inconvenient and disruptive life was for Stephen and his parents. The story gives a full account of their moods and fights, yet chronicles the journey of love and understanding that the family takes. There is no tub-thumping or heavy political speech and no ideological asides, rather genuine, guileless writing. Lucky Fish! is a wonderful, sensitively written book for teenagers and young adults.
