Rich Girl, Poor Boy By Bode Osanyin
Rich Girl, Poor Boy as the title suggests is the story of a young lady from a wealthy family who fall in love with a man of poor origins. Tokunbo is the only daughter of rich parents. She first meets her future husband Lai, when he climbs into her house and tries to steal some fruit. As fate would have it, they meet again years later at university and fall in love, but Lai already has a girlfriend. This causes some complications. The story has a very sad ending....

The Pacesetters books were written in the 70s and 80s by notable African authors. The books give a deep insight into African culture and tradition. I grew up on these novels, so was very excited to see some of the titles back in print. There are about 130 novels altogether, so I hope to see more of these novels in print.

Gezani is determined to ensure that his child has a better life than he has so he decides to have her educated. Gezani is a traditional Nguni who does not approve of Christianity and the foreign missionaries who bring it. However, he does appreciate the need for Swazi children to be able to read and write, and only missionary schools provide this education. Despite having convinced his father to disown her twenty years earlier when she converted to Christianity, Gezani seeks out his sister, Saraphina, a teacher at a missionary school, and asks that she takes in Kiki and sends her to school. Gezani then decides to leave his homestead and go back to working in the mines of Johannesburg in order to pay for Kiki’s education.
