Summary:

"Trevor Noah, the funny guy who hosts the Daily Show on Comedy Central, shares his remarkable story of growing up in South Africa with a black South African Mother and a white European father at a time when it was against the law for a mixed-race child to exist. But he did exist--and from the beginning, the often-misbehaved Trevor used his keen smarts and humor to navigate a harsh life under a racist government. This fascinating memoir blends drama, comedy, and tragedy to depict the day-to-day trials that turned a boy into a young man. In a country where racism barred blacks from social, educational, and economic opportunity, Trevor surmounted staggering obstacles and created a promising future for himself, thanks to his moms unwavering love and indomitable will. It's Trevor Noah: born a crime not only provides a fascinating and honest perspective on South Africa's racial history, but it will also astound and inspire young readers looking to improve their own lives." --Front book jacket.
