Book club selection. I loved the Southern setting, of course, but also liked the journey Calpurnia took to self-discovery. This book made me review my life and the turning points I had in my own journey. Highly recommended for young girls.

An amazing story of brutality and heartache set in the Rwandan Holocaust. I was in awe of Immaculee's strength and courage. It changed the way I think about life and surviving difficult times.
