The Dragons, the Giant, the Women

FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD
A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR
A TIME MUST-READ BOOK

A powerful and poignant memoir of survival and resistance by the critically acclaimed author of She Would Be King, about her family's dramatic escape from the Liberian Civil War, and how they were eventually reunited.

When Wayetu Moore turns five years old, her father and grandmother throw her a party at home in, Liberia. Yet all she can think about is how much she misses her mother, studying in faraway New York.

Then war breaks out in Liberia. The family is forced to flee on foot, until a remarkable rescue by a rebel soldier.

But even in the relative safety of her adopted home, America, Moore finds herself - as a Black woman and immigrant - in a new kind of danger. Will she forever be that girl still running?
