The Bite of the Mango by Mariatu Kamara with Susan McClelland

The Bite of the Mango by Mariatu Kamara
So sad. In 1999, Mariatu was 12 years old when armed rebels attacked her village in Sierra Leone and cut off her hands. She survived and got medical help only to find out that she was pregnant. The story of her survival and eventual education is powerful and inspiring and she is trying to get the story out to help others in her country as well.
I highly recommend this book.
