Incredibly sad and harsh story of Rwandas civil war between hutus and tootsies, more than 800.000 people where killed in less than 3 months.

My geography class read this and at first it was very boring. But, the concept or the lesson that is supposed to be taken is wonderful. End the end, I loved the book!! Now, most of my other classmates didn't. I honestly think it is a must read, and would love to read it again someday.
