A powerful and emotional story of survival in one of the most difficult times in history.
When she was six years old, Clemantine Wamariya was too young to understand why she and her sister had to flee the Rwandan genocide, only to suffer abuse and starvation in refugee camps.
But this is a story of strength, survival and the struggle to maintain a sense of self when all else is lost. It's devastating, inspiring and ultimately a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.
The Girl Who Smiled Beads (Doubleday Canada) by Clemantine Wamariya, $33.
