The powerful story of one girl's triumphant journey, inspired by true tales of life in Sudan -- now in paperback.
Life in Amira's peaceful Sudanese village is shattered when Janjaweed attackers arrive, unleashing unspeakable horrors.

She begins to lose hope, until the gift of a simple red pencil opens her mind -- and all kinds of possibilities.
