's review

it was amazing

I have a limited understanding of Rwanda and the horrors during the 1990s genocide but, I was aware of the scope of violence during the time period. So, even though it’s right there – printed on the jacket of the book – I was still completely gutted when the events make an appearance in this book.

“Small Country” is set in Burundi, a small country neighboring Rwanda and tells the story of Gabriel and his boyhood antics just before war and violence break out. He’s a mischievous yet kind-hearted kid who’s coming-of-age process gets brutally interrupted in an irreversible way. I was a blubbering mess at the end of this book.
