Alan Duff’s — Both Sides of the Moon *****

Alan Duff’s — Both Sides of the Moon *****

Because Jimmy’s father is a Pakeha and his mother Maori, he struggles to discover where he fits in. After his mother leaves to live with another man, Jimmy turns more to his uncle who tells his about his Maori family history.

This is a tough read, but a telling narrative of a family caught between two cultures.
