#ReadAroundtheWorld #SouthSudan based on the life of the authors uncle this is an interesting look at modern versus traditional family values in South Sudan particularly when it comes to women.

#readaroundtheworld #southsudan From the moment he witnessed his own father‘s beheading we share in the shaping of this smart and slightly hapless young man‘s slow transformation into a skilled killer. The novel is told simply through the boy‘s narration and because it makes you care for him, I found myself feeling complicit as he opted to attempt to survive as a child soldier rather than simply welcome death. Chilling.
This is my #SouthSudan read for this month‘s #ReadAroundTheWorld challenge. This isn‘t one that I would have read otherwise as I don‘t typically read a lot of Middle Grade books- but this is based on a true story and was a very quick and engaging listen of Sudan both past and present. It‘s well-performed and the audio included a bit from both the man that inspired this and the author. I think this would be great for the classroom!! @JenP
#readaroundtheworld #southsudan A journalist‘s on the ground reporting regarding the deaths of civilians, women and children in the newest world country of South Sudan. After decades of civil wars South Sudan voted in 2011 to become an independent country and split from Sudan. Since then decades of civil war has only birthed more atrocities rather than true independence as the ethnic people turned on each other. Truly full of despair.
Short #litsywalkers trip to the library to collect reservations. Will make up for it with enthusiastic hoovering later. (🤥)
As a possible for #ReadAroundTheWorld #SouthSudan , I‘d requested a book of poems by Taban Lo Liyong. Not sure I‘ll get through/on with it, but when did you last see all this inside a library book? Doesn‘t look like it‘s ever been borrowed. And they went to all the trouble of a gold embossed Devon Libraries stamp as well!
When child is a soldier then something is very wrong with our world ... Emmanuel‘s childhood was constant battle of survival. Growing up with many scars in his soul, he managed to escape, to control his anger/hate, and find his voice in music. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘ve found some library titles to reserve for #readaroundtheworld #SouthSudan next month. Beneath the Darkening Sky is about a child soldier, a fate the author narrowly avoided through being just too short. Taban Io Liyong was a poet born in South Sudan.
I would also liked to have tried Withered Flowers by Stella Gaitano, but it‘s not easily available.
Has anyone found any other recommendations from South Sudan?
