“Say You're One of Them is a collection of stories, each about a different child in Africa dealing with a difficult life. While the circumstances are described with brutal honesty, the characters are multidimensional and are treated with compassion. This is not an easy read, but the crisp, detailed writing makes it worthwhile.”
— Sarah Farnsworth, Briggs Carriage Bookstore, Brandon, VT
