Reviews
This short, quickly paced narrative will stay with readers for the rest of their lives.-- "School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW"
Readers will come away with clear pictures of gender roles in Poni's culture as well as the South Sudan conflict's devastating physical and psychological effects. . . . Moving and necessary.-- "Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW"
Poni is such a fully realized and sympathetic character that she engages readers from start to finish.-- "Horn Book"
This is a profound rendering of a southern Sudanese female heroine who must first go down into darkness before she can rise. Women around the world will savor this stunning book.
