By: Terry Farish
ISBN: 9780761462675

Viola and her family flee the war in Sudan, and they find themselves in Portland. There is a strong embrace of the South Sudanese culture.

Viola feels unease because it is still a completely different place to memories of South Sudan. Those aged 12-17 can gain insight from this account. It brings to light conflicting thoughts and feelings of life across two cultures.
