From Ms. Luhtala: This powerful memoir of a young woman who escaped Rwanda during the 1994 civil war will challenge readers to rethink their preconceived notions about political refugees. It is no coincidence that this brilliant book's author won the prestigious Alex award this year. it is a thought-provoking read. It also aligns with the NCHS curriculum. Students will research this episode of Rwandan history several times in their 9th and 10th grade history classes.
