Surviving this shithole { Book Review}

As a young girl who grew up being “told you speak so well”. “If I just close my eyes I could pretend it’s a white person and my favorite “are you sure you are Xhosa or from South Africa” this book was written for me. It turns out people had it wrong I’m not a coconut but trans-racial. This book is the quintessential guide to converting to the right white side of life.

She was last spotted on the crossroads of Swart and Gevaar Roads drinking Woolies water and spreading her ‘truth bombs’ .With handy tips for how to achieve the right ,white ,standard of beauty, dealing with your family in the lalies, how to nab yourself a white guy. Kelz offers a complete guide to the Caucasian conversion.

What I thought

Having been a fan of this witty satirist I honestly couldn’t wait to read her book. It was worth it literal laugh out loud. It was a great break from reality, although the book spoke to reality. No topic was spared and I found her social commentary refreshing. So if you are in need of a good laugh ( I mean who isn’t ?) be sure to get her book or follow her socials.
