Book: "Say You're One of Them"

A better person would have liked this book more than I did.  Written by a Nigerian Jesuit priest, the five stories describe African life from the viewpoint of African children.  It was an Oprah's Book Club selection and the stories are well-written and engaging.  However, I'm afraid the subject matter is a little too grim for me, so I feel shallow for not enjoying the book more.

My rating:  ** (out of 5)
