Luka isn't dead. He's not beyond saving. Tess knows because she saw him with her own eyes. After what she saw, she's sure of one thing: If they don't rescue him soon, Luka won't be Luka anymore. If only she could convince the other members of the hub. They're not sure Tess saw what she claims she saw. And they're preoccupied by the fact that their kind is being systematically eradicated. Answers lie in an ancient prophecy, one that revolves around a 17-year-old girl who never asked for any of this.

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

Listening to Trevor Noah tell his story was such an amazing experience. It was like I was with him growing up. It had a little bit of every emotion in it. I cried with him, I laughed with him. I was even scared with him. I recommend this book to any one who wants to understand the history of South African culture and partied, with Trevor Noah's perception of life living in it. Very interested, Very well Read, Just a Great book Period....
