Here is the book info:
This Thing Called the Future, by J.L. Powers. An alternative fantasy and coming-of-age story set in post-apartheid South Africa.
"This novel takes a loving, clear-eyed look at the clash of old and new through the experience of one appealing teenager… A compassionate and moving window on a harsh world."—Kirkus Reviews
"… a compelling, often harrowing portrait of a struggling country, where old beliefs and rituals still have power, but can’t erase the problems of the present. Readers will be fully invested in Khosi’s efforts to secure a better future. "—Publishers Weekly
