Say You’re One of Them by Uwen Akpan
Poverty and violence are things children in Africa face daily. Akpan shares stories of such children, two of which include: 'An Ex-Mas Feast,' about an eight-year-old in Kenya who needs money to buy books and pay fees to attend school, but the money his young sister takes on the streets must be used for food. Another is: 'My Parents' Bedroom,' about a young girl and her small brother in Rwanda who witness their parents' terrible choice in order to protect their children.
