あらすじ・解説

Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, little six-year-old Peekay learns that small can beat big. Armed with this knowledge, he resolves to take on the injustices of his country, and sets his heart on becoming the welterweight champion of the world. Peekay starts to take boxing lessons, makes new friends, collects cacti, and plays the piano. Above all, he learns to think with his head and then with his heart. Peekay discovers that nothing can defeat the determination to be true to yourself: This is the power of one.

Distracted by poor rendition of the South African accent

The reader does a very poor job of trying to copy a South African accent. Very distracting when someone fails with this.

Extremely good book!!

The beginning was tough to get through because of hard to pronounce names and locations in South Africa! Soo glad I stuck with it! My 14 yr old son started to read it for school and switched to "Unbroken". Also a great book, but wish he had stuck with this one because he would have identified more with the the young boy than a grown man as a POW! Would recommend "Power of One" to everyone, it is extremely inspirational!!

Good for high school students.

Coming of age story and valuable life lessons are geared more to high school readers.

A truley inspirational book for young adults.

A fantastic book for tackling complex issues of racism and bullying. The story gives hope and teaches us to look deeply at ourselves to move beyond anger and violence for each one to do their best.
