"Before one fateful April day, Jeanne lived the life of a typical Rwandan girl. She fought with her little sister, went to school, and teased her brother. Then, in one horrifying night, everything changed. Political troubles unleashed a torrent of violence upon the Tutsi ethnic group. Jeanne's family, all Tutsis, fled their home and tried desperately to reach safety. They--along with nearly 1 million others--did not survive. The only survivor of her family's massacre, Jeanne witnessed unspeakable acts. But through courage, wits, and sheer force of will, she survived. Based on a true story, this haunting novel by Jeanne's adoptive mother makes unforgettably real the events of the 1994 Rwandan genocide as one family experienced it. Jeanne's story is a tribute to the human spirit and its capacity to heal.--From publisher description."--From source other than the Library of Congress… (mer)

The first YA novel I know of having to do with the Rwandan genocide of Hutus and Tutsis. The book is based on the German author's adoptive child's experiences in Rwanda during the mid-90s genocide. Jeanne and her family live a fairly comfortable life in Rwanda until the assassination of the president and his cabinet causes chaos throughout the country. As Tutsis, the family is forced to flee invading Hutus who are murdering citizens and destroying property. Jeanne witnesses her mother's and brother's deaths, and loses the rest of her family. She has to rely on the questionable tolerance of strangers to survive another day.

This is a moving, unforgettable story based on the life of the authorÛªs adoptive daughter. At an early age, Jeanne battles to stay alive and she sees atrocities no child should ever be witness to. While this could never be described as a ‰Û÷nice‰Ûª story it does end with a feeling of hope for Jeanne‰Ûªs future. ( )

This book is about about a girl named Jeanne D'Arc. Before the Rwandan Genocide, she was a typical Rwandan girl. Then one day, Jeanne had to flee her home to escape jailors who were killing all the Tutsis. Unfortunately, Jeanne was the only one in her family who survived. Later on, Jeanne stayed with the Rebels until going to live with her aunt in Germany.
I liked this book very much. I felt very sorry for her when she realized that her parents and siblings died. I admired her strength when she asked the Rebels for help. ( )

I thought this book was gripping from the beginning sentence. It shows the ugly face of genocide, in a heartwrenching manner. I would highly recommend. ( )

i really love the book .i think what jeanne (dede) went through was something a reagular kid would not go through .she was very bold when she was on the journey to zaza with maria.i do think she was a surviver .it is very obvious that she was scared ,but she didnt let that stop her from getting away from the interhamwe (tutsi's) .i say that jeanne have the right to be a braggart .she did it all on her own , with some help .
