The Red Pencil

“Amira, look at me,” Muma insists.
She collects both my hands in hers.
“The Janjaweed attack without warning.
If ever they come–run.”

Finally, Amira is twelve. Old enough to wear a toob, old enough for new responsibilities. And maybe old enough to go to school in Nyala–Amira’s one true dream.

But life in her peaceful Sudanese village is shattered when the Janjaweed arrive. T

Finally, Amira is twelve. Old enough to wear a toob, old enough for new responsibilities. And maybe old enough to go to school in Nyala–Amira’s one true dream.

But life in her peaceful Sudanese village is shattered when the Janjaweed arrive. The terrifying attackers ravage the town and unleash unspeakable horrors. After she loses nearly everything, Amira needs to dig deep within herself to find the strength to make the long journey–on foot–to safety at a refugee camp. Her days are tough at the camp, until the gift of a simple red pencil opens her mind–and all kinds of possibilities.

New York Times bestselling and Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Andrea Davis Pinkney’s powerful verse and Coretta Scott King Award-winning artist Shane W. Evans’s breathtaking illustrations combine to tell an inspiring tale of one girl’s triumph against all odds.

    I tend to struggle with books written in verse, but I quite enjoyed this one! Though I definitely still had some issues here and there. I feel like the beginning part of the story could’ve been condensed and the ending could’ve been expanded. Other than that this was a beautiful story about a girl who’s faced with with a life changing event and how she keeps herself going & heals.

    “Someday,
    when you marry,
    you will not need to read.
    A good wife lets her husband do the reading.”

    Due to her sex and upbringing, twelve-year-old Amira’s options for the future are limited. She is expected to marry young, raise children, and work on a farm in Sudan. But changes are coming.

    My father tries to explain something
    that is more twisted
    than a tangled
    skein of raggedy thread.
    “Amira, we are living in a time of war.”

    He uses strange terms:
    Persecution
    Rebellion
    Genocide

    I understand a little more

    I understand a little more
    when Dando explains,
    “There has been fighting for land.”

    I say,
    “It’s senseless
    to fight over something
    Allah has made for everyone.”

    Because this book is written in poems, I had planned to read it as I do other books of poetry – one or two verses per day. But the story begs to be read like a novel, and is genuinely quite involving. You will have a hard time forgetting this sad, yet uplifting tale of a young girl who desires only what so many of us take for granted – an education, and a chance to choose our own path in life.

    it was amazing

    GO READ THIS NOW. I’ll wait. It doesn’t take long, but it’s also a book to savor and reread. A middle grade novel told in verse, I have never read something so powerful with so few words. The sparse prose worked brilliantly, with not a word wasted. This is especially important because of the subject matter. The illustrations are evocative and rich pencil drawings, and I wish I could insert over 20+images here to prove it’s artistic beauty.

    Pinkney was deeply moved by the Darfur conflict and want

    Pinkney was deeply moved by the Darfur conflict and wanted to create a novel that made war accessible to young readers. She wished to impart truth in the devastation it causes, but also show that artistic expression can be healing in even the most dire circumstances. The impact that this one red pencil and a few sheets of paper have on twelve year old Amira is overwhelming.

    If you don’t stop and appreciate the basic comforts in your own life while reading, you might not be seeing the words properly. The arrival of the Janjaweed militants and subsequent death of most of the village forces her remaining family to a refugee camp in Kalma. This is told in stark detail, with words gradually falling off the page as the horrors render her silent for a time.

    It isn’t all sad. There are games, laughter, small blessings, and above all, hope for a better future. These people aren’t depicted as weak, but survivors of unimaginable atrocities.

    My favorite illustrations are on pages 26,29,41-43,60, 115, 136, 146, 203. There really aren’t any bad ones. Big thanks to Akoss from #MGLitCheerleader YouTube channel for suggesting this as a buddy read. Beyond fantastic!! Comment below if you’ve read, I’d love to chat!
