As If Born to You

Author: Susan Newham-Blake

When 13-year-old Zuri begins cutting herself, psychologist Ana is called in to help. Is the troubled girl trying to relieve the tension of being black in a predominantly white private school? How healthy is Zuri’s relationship with Helen, the white single mom who adopted her? And what happened to Zuri’s biological mother?

Reckless, alcoholic Ana must piece together the puzzles of both Helen and her daughter – while battling an old trauma of her own.

As If Born To You is a poignant and sensitive story about the complex bonds of family, race and mental health, that is also an heart wrenching reflection on South Africa today.
