The Music BoxThe Music Box by Bekezela Broscius
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A delightful and entertaining story...

The Music Box by Bekezela Broscius is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novella with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this inspiring story that will guarantee the attention of the younger reader. Set in Zimbabwe, it tells the story of the trials, tribulations and triumphs of eleven-year-old Busi with lessons in friendship, bullying and strength.

This is a nice middle-grade novella that I’m sure the younger reader will enjoy. The vivid descriptions of the settings, situations, and the people were stunning and realistic. The author’s use of genuine dialogue further added to the overall atmosphere of authenticity. Recommended reading and a well-deserved five stars from me.
