it was amazing

I recommend this very highly. I was really hesitant to read this, because I find Dave Eggers' writing often to be overly stylized and verbose. However, he did an incredible job of writing in Deng's voice. The book is heart-wrenching and an incredible account both of escaping genocide and struggling to stay afloat as a refugee in the U.S.
