Say You're One of Them

Publisher: Abacus

Review

This collection ranges from the depiction of a street family's poverty in Kenya and illegal trading of children in Gabon to inter-religious conflicts in Nigeria and Ethiopia and the terrible situation faced by a mixed Hutu-Tsutsi family in Rwanda.

Akpan's stories, told from the viewpoints of children (the innocent victims) are powerful, vivid and deeply moving.
