Say Youre One of Them (Oprahs Book Club) by Uwem Akpan

Each story in this jubilantly acclaimed collection pays testament to the wisdom and resilience of children, even in the face of the most agonizing circumstances. A family living in a makeshift shanty in urban Kenya scurries to find gifts of any kind for the impending Christmas holiday. A Rwandan girl relates her familys struggles to maintain a facade of normalcy amid unspeakable acts. A young brother and sister cope with their uncles attempt to sell them into slavery. Aboard a bus filled with refugees-a microcosm of todays Africa-a Muslim boy summons his faith to bear a treacherous ride across Nigeria. Through the eyes of childhood friends the emotional toll of religious conflict in Ethiopia becomes viscerally clear. ?nbsp; Uwem Akpans debut signals the arrival of a breathtakingly talented writer who gives a matter-of-fact reality to the most extreme circumstances in stories that are nothing short of transcendent.
