About this title

Synopsis:

AIDS and South Africa. Khosi, a 14-year-old girl, yearns for this thing called the future. Does she want too much?

From the Inside Flap:


From the first words we are drawn into Khosi's world. A great achievement by J.L. Powers.—Deborah Ellis, author of The Breadwinner Trilogy
South Africa & AIDS.
14-year-old Khosi yearns for this thing called the future.
Does she want too much?

"Khosi's heartbreaking and redemptive coming-of-age story compels us to face the demons within cultural superstitions and choose a future that can be changed." —Ann Angel, author of Janis Joplin: Rise Up Singing

"In a literary landscape cluttered with the imagined powers of the paranormal, This Thing Called the Future introduces us to the reality that supernatural strength exists here and now. Gripping, honest, and eye-opening, this book will change the way you see the world." —Emily Wing Smith, author of The Way He Lived and Back When You Were Easier to Love
"J.L. Powers takes the challenges and sorrows of contemporary South Africa and renders them powerfully immediate in the character of Khosi, a girl negotiating coming of age in her post-apartheid, AIDS-ravaged country. Provocative, unvarnished, loving." —Sarah Ellis, author of Odd Man Out
and The Several Lives of Orphan Jack
