Default Cry of the Giraffe

bona fide 100% truth - or rather, the palatable part of the truth - the author's a close friend.
I highly recommend this book, geared for teen readers and presented as narrative.

and no, I'm not recommending because I make anything from the sales but because I know the story, the individuals involved and read the book in one sitting.

The author risked her life to actually buy the sister of her "adopted daughter" from the child's enslavers.

Just found this link to the first 10 pages or so:

I am sorry to hear about persecution of the Jews in Ethiopia. They have a long history there since legend traces the royal family back to Solomon and Sheba, and there are still rumors that the ark of the covenant is hidden in a monastery in Axun...
