Maybe Tomorrow by Meme McDonald & Boori Pryor

 

Reading Maybe Tomorrow feels like Boori is talking to you – as a reader you gain a real sense of who he is and what he thinks – and this feels like a real privilege. Maybe Tomorrow is about Boori’s life, his experiences, his thoughts and his feelings – it is a truly inspiring read.

The winning element of this book, and essentially of Boori himself, is the passion, his passion. A passion connected to his pride, knowledge, acceptance and the ability to keep learning and teaching.

Boori fills the book with tales of growing up, the strength of his family, leaving home and carving a life for himself.

“Being Aboriginal, I couldn’t do that in Townsville.”

Intertwined with his life experiences of being a DJ, model and basketball player are anecdotes from the current day – his performances at schools across the country.

Throughout Maybe Tomorrow, Boori explodes many myths surrounding his culture and presents us with its strength, power and passion in an engaging and illuminating manner. His enthusiasm and respect is captivating, and his modesty honourable;

“I’m just a grain of sand in this land we call Australia. All I’m trying to do is my little bit.”

There’s a lot more I could write about this book, many more quotes I could copy out for you … but ultimately you need to discover the rest of Maybe Tomorrow for yourself. Come back and tell us what you think.

“My eyes and my heart have been opened to see this country, my home, in a new way. My children will grow up with this understanding – thank you, Boori, for this gift.” – Meme McDonald co-author of Maybe Tomorrow.
