About this book:

Mokgethi is not your average teenage girl. Mokgethi dreams of going to Oxford. To study Actuarial Science. But her grandmother and aunt have other ideas, and with no one to fight her corner, except for her younger brother Khutso, Mokgethi is forced to realise that her dreams may well turn out to be just that. Dreams. Kgebetli Moele returns with perhaps his most controversial novel to date – a novel written from the perspective of a seventeen year old girl. "Untitled" explores the challenges that face young women trying to escape the poverty into which they have been born – Mokgethi’s life is all about overcoming poor education, escaping sexual predators (young and old) and dealing with the lack of positive role models in her township. In this explosive novel, Moele deals head-on with sexual abuse, rape and poverty in a way that very few South African authors can.
