Through its story of the struggles of its main character Poni, conveys the devastating effects of war and political upheaval on the Sudanese civilian population, and on Sudanese girls in particular. Also situates Poni in the culture and customs of her village, and shows how getting an education there is a struggle for a girl even before the war. Well-written with developed, compelling characters, the story unfolds organically, and never feels forced. I found this book particularly relevant for the present moment in its vivid portrayal of what it means to be a refugee from a war-torn country, perhaps encouraging American readers to have empathy for refugees seeking to resettle in the U.S.
