The Good Braider
A NovelBook - 2012
Told in spare free verse, the book follows Viola as she survives brutality in war-torn Sudan, makes a perilous journey, lives as a refugee in Egypt, and finally reaches Portland, Maine, where her quest for freedom and security is hampered by memories of past horrors and the traditions her mother and other Sudanese adults hold dear. With unforgettable images, the author's voice sings out the story of her family's journey, and tells the universal tale of a young immigrant's struggle to build a life on the cusp of two cultures. Includes historical facts and a map of Sudan.
