Summary, etc.:
It was 1994, and in 100 days, more than 800,000 people would be murdered in Rwanda and millions more displaced. Six-year-old Clemantine Wamariya and sister Claire spent the next six years wandering through seven African countries searching for safety and hiding while witnessing unimaginable cruelty. At age twelve, Clemantine and Claire were granted asylum in the United States. Raw, urgent, yet disarmingly beautiful, this book captures the true costs and aftershocks of war: what is forever lost, what can be repaired, the fragility and importance of memory.
