A Change Is Gonna Come
Publisher: Little Tiger
From the tale of a dystopian prison camp in Brighton to a Harry Potter fan trying to keep her compulsions a secret; from an historical circus member finding their place to friends growing apart and a grief-stricken young person discovering their heritage, A Change Is Gonna Come is a must-have anthology full of gripping entries.
Featuring poems and stories from 12 black, Asian and minority ethnic authors – including four previously unpublished writers – this absorbing book offers refreshing perspectives and thought-provoking questions about the meaning of change that will hit home with everyone.
One thing's for sure – it's never boring. Try to pace yourself and read just one of the stories, and you'll soon discover you've accidentally raced through the entire selection.
Luckily, thanks to the huge variety on offer and the tales' humour, emotional punches to the gut, and moments that force you to stop in your tracks, this collection definitely bears re-reading. It's a book to savour.
