Any good ideas for books my high schoolers can read about culture or living in Africa?

Looking to get some ideas so I can see if our library can order some great books before we get into that unit.

  5. lifeteaching8thgrade answered: A Long Way Gone - Ishmael Beah; It’s a great autobiography about a man who went through life as a child soldier.
