Chanda snow dating older men
I’m an anti-social prick with few friends to introduce to her.
My friends are mostly older, married professionals with wives in their mid-40’s.
This is a beautifully written story offering a raw glimpse at the AIDS epidemic sweeping southern Africa.
Stratton effectively puts faces to the many heartbreaking statistics.
If I moved her to America, she would have none of these things. Well, there’s probably a bus stop within walking distance, but no one rides the bus in America except creepy bus people.
She’d end up sitting in my suburban house alone all day while I work. I couldn’t foist her off on my family; my closest family lives 2,000 miles way.
Reader reviewed by Casey Hurtgen Chanda's Secrets, an amazing novel by Allan Strattan, is set in southern Africa.
This book is about raw truths- poverty, AIDS, and death.
This is the story of one teenager in Africa as she struggles to overcome the difficulties in her life. She takes care of her family in sounthern Africa where almost everybody lives in poverty and the coffins fill steadily as AIDS spreads.
Where Chanda lives, AIDS is higly feared but only aknowledged in hushed tones.
Bringing my Cambodian wife to America would be an even worse idea.
At least in Cambodia she would have friends, family, and a whole life outside of interacting with me.
It is the story of a young girl coming to terms with AIDS and how it affects her country (Africa) and it's people.
