Here, in the sometimes too close embrace of the local Southern Sudanese Community, she dreams of South Sudan while she tries to navigate the strange world of America—a world where a girl can wear a short skirt, get a tattoo, or even date a boy- a world that puts her into sharp conflict with her traditional mother who, like Viola, is struggling to braid together the strands of a displaced life. Terry Farishs haunting novel is not only a riveting story of escape and survival, but the universal tale of a young immigrants struggle to build a life on the cusp of two cultures.The author of The Good Braider has donated this book to the Worldreader program.
