Alek has a knack for recounting her life so that it's understandable to an outsider. In that regard, the Dinka and the African refugee are familiar rather than foreign. I was unable to finish her book when it first came out some years ago. At the time, Diary of a Lost Girl was one of my favorite books. If you've read Kola Boof's autobiography, then I highly recommend Alek: From Sudanese Refugee to International Supermodel.
