The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the prestigious 2008 Carnegie Medal. A touching love story set against the turbulence and danger of a world divided by apartheid. Brought up to stand against everything that divides the society in which she lives, Ruby finds herself unexpected falling in love with someone with starkly opposing views. If you like this, be sure to check out another Linzi Glass title, The Year The Gypsies Came.
Ruby Red by Linzi Glass
In Ruby Winters' world, colour opens some doors and slams others shut. Her Johannesburg neighbourhood is a far cry from the streets of Soweto where anger and hatred simmer under the surface. Ruby can't resist the blue-eyed Afrikaans boy who brings her the rush of first love, but whose presence also brings hushed whispers and disapproving glances.
