The Girl Who Smiled Beads
The Girl Who Smiled Beads A Story of War and What Comes After By Wamariya, Clemantine Book - 2018

Clemantine was just six when she and her 15-year old sister were forced to flee the massacre in Rwanda; they were displaced throughout Africa for six years until they attained refugee status in the USA. Clemantine's story is harrowing, perhaps more so because we see these experiences through the eyes of a child who does not fully understand the events she is caught in. I found this book hard to put down; I was invested in Clemantine’s journey and its effects on her life in the USA and admired her honesty, strength and insight.
