When we meet someone, one of the things we notice is the colour of their skin. But what can someone's skin colour tell us about them? Despite what some people say, your skin means very little! Inside we're all the same.

Join Njabulo, Aisha, Tim, Chris and Roshni as they discover why humans have different skins, and how people's thinking about skin colour has changed throughout history. Skin We Are In is a celebration of the glorious human rainbow, both in South Africa and beyond.

One of South Africa's best-selling authors, Sindiwe Magona, has teamed up with well-known American anthropologist, Nina G. Jablonski, and award-winning illustrator Lynn Fellman to create a much-needed book about race and skin colour – for children.

From bestselling author of the Shatter Me series and the National Book Award-nominated A Very Large Expanse of Sea, Tahereh Mafi, comes a stunning novel about love and loneliness, navigating dual-identity as a Muslim teenager in America, and reclaiming your right to joy.

It’s 2003. It’s been several months since the US officially declared war on Iraq, and the political world has evolved. Shadi, who wears hijab (a visible allegiance to Islam) keeps her head down. Hate crimes are spiking. Undercover FBI agents are infiltrating mosques and interrogating members of the congregation, and the local Muslim community is beginning to fracture. Shadi hears the fights after services, the arguments between families about what it means to be Muslim, about what they should be doing and saying as a community but she does not engage.

She’s too busy drowning in her own troubles to find the time to deal with bigots.

Shadi is named for joy, but she’s haunted by sorrow. Her brother is dead, her father is dying, her mother is falling apart, and her best friend has mysteriously dropped out of her life. And then, of course, there’s the small matter of her heart
It’s broken. Shadi has tried to navigate the remains of her quickly-shattering world by soldiering through, saying nothing, until finally, one day, everything changes.

She explodes.

Perfect for fans of the Shatter Me series as well as Angie Thomas's The Hate U Give and Nicola Yoon's The Sun is Also A Star.

Kara Immelman se lewe is eintlik nogal uitgesorteer. Sy is in matriek en hoewel sy heeltemal te skaam is om gewild te wees, het sy vir Eduard, haar beste vriend van laerskooldae af. Sy is ook haar skool se topswemmer en die moontlikheid van ’n swembeurs wink. Al gebeur daar nie veel op die dorpie waar hulle woon nie, het sy en Eduard groot planne om eendag die wreld te sien. Planne wat aangevuur word deur hulle gedeelde passie vir flieks. Wanneer Samantha egter op die toneel verskyn, herrangskik dit Kara en Eduard se hele bestaan. Want Sam is nie net onmoontlik mooi nie, sy speel ook volgens haar eie rels.

Toe ons oneindig was, is die verhaal van ’n meisie wat nog altyd presies gedoen het wat van haar verwag is. Iemand wat so besig was om almal gelukkig te hou, dat sy nooit regtig probeer uitvind het wat hr gelukkig maak nie. Totdat sy een middag in ’n aantrekhokkie vir die heel eerste keer gesoen word. Dis ’n storie oor vriendskap en lojaliteit. Oor seksualiteit en vloeibaarheid. Maar bowenal is dit die verhaal van ’n meisie op ’n selfontdekkingsreis – die soort reis wat in ’n Hollywoodfliek hoort.
