I Am Not a Witch

Rungano Nyoni

An eight-year-old girl from nowhere Shula is proclaimed by local villagers a witch. After a short trial, she is expelled from the village and sent to a witch camp. There she is—tied to a ribbon attached to a coil that sits on a truck. The ribbon must not be cut, should she ever do that, she will be cursed and turned into a goat.
