"The Yibir of Las Burgabo is the story of a Yibir family of Somalia.  (Yibir are the most ostracized and despised group in Somalia.)  After a trip on foot out of town, Geeddi fails to return home, and one day, his two children, Amina and Ali, are greeted with news of his untimely death.  Amina, a teenager, assumes the role of parent to her nine-year-old brither.  She knows of her family's dark past, which she keeps from her brother out of respect for her late father's wishes."
