Viola, a young teen who has escaped from Sudan, is haunted by the life she left behind – the people she has loved, the violence she has endured, and the natural beauty she remembers – as much as she is fearful and uncertain in her new life as an American living in Portland, Maine. A variety of discussion guides are also available.
Recommended for ages 14 and up.
