Glimmers of Light: True Stories of a Ugandan Schoolgirl follows a fearless young Achan Esther through confrontations with the staff of St. Julian of Norwich Secondary School in Kampala, a land quite unlike her own place of origin. Like many other adolescent girls, she encounters friendship, gossip, peer pressure, and the stress of exams. What is unique about her teenage experiences, however, is the student rebellion into which she has incidentally stumbled. Each chapter of this book is based on a true story, but if every school-going child in Uganda had experiences like Achan's, there might not be any boarding schools left.
