The Power of One: A Novel

This is one of my favorite books of all time! It's such a heartfelt and profound story of a young boy growing up in apartheid S. Africa and how he grows into a talented boxer who fights for the end of the racism and opression in his country.

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a memoir by American writer Mitch Albom. The story was later recreated by Thomas Rickman into a TV movie of the same name directed by Mick Jackson. This starred Jack Lemm.
