Summary: At the age of ten, Sandra Uwiringiyimana survives a bloody massacre at a refugee camp in Burundi, but her beloved little sister Deborah does not. At times horrifying, joyous, challenging and rewarding, this memoir of Sandra’s childhood in three war-torn African nations is followed by her account of life in America, as a newcomer who is also black and female. Cultural conflicts, sexism, racism and the effects of PTSD are counter-balanced by family, friends, community, and Sandra’s own activism for her voiceless, stateless people back home.
