My personal Rating-

I admit that I don’t know much about South Sudan, so this small book was educational. Even though “Escape from Sudan” was only 124 pages, there was quite a bit of Spiritual Content, which was nice. I can see Homeschoolers reading this for learning about another country. :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
