Do you rate this book?

Alice Achan was twelve years old when the Lord’s Resistance Army began terrorising northern Uganda where she lived. After being on the run for many years, she established CCF Pader and the Pader Girl’s Academy – places where girls and women who were victims of the LRA could recover, learn new skills, and become the amazing people they were meant to be. Powerful and understated, The School of Restoration offers insight into the chaos and devastation of war but also the redemption and survival of hope during even the darkest times.

Reading room discussion: How does Alice best express the potential for forgiveness and grace from our darkest experiences?
