Maxine Beneba Clarke is hands down my new favourite author. I absolutely loved Foreign Soil, and when I heard that she was releasing a memoir I was so ecstatic! It certainly lived up to my expectations and then some.
The Hate Race is an incredible exploration of the effects of racism on a young dark-skinned girl growing up in Australia. This powerful memoir uncovers the traumatic memories held by Clarke from her schooling years in Sydney, including the constant taunts, catcalls, and nicknames, as well as the isolation felt by Clarke as the result of her skin colour.
I feel that it would be very beneficial to include this book in every high school curriculum – simply so that young adolescents can understand the hurt they can cause as a result of their racial bullying.
It would have taken a lot of strength and courage to put pen to paper to write this book, and Clarke should be commended for shedding light on the endemic issue of racism. A must read for anyone, regardless of whether you have experienced racism or not.
As a diehard Harry Potter fan, I really hate to do this... but I give this release a 3 out of 5. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a lovely gift to every Harry Potter fan out there who has spent a long time waiting to see their wizard friends again. But it really is a magnificent piece of fan fiction at best.
There are some redeeming factors. Although the plot holes are visible, they make for charming and heartfelt conversations between much-loved characters. The best thing about this book is how nostalgic it is - not only are all of our favourite characters brought back to life, but we get to revisit some of our favourite scenes such as the Triwizard Tournament and more.
This was a risky experiment and, while quite fun while it lasted, I do not want to read about Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger rolling around in magical wheelchairs.
