The Queen of Katwe by Tim Crothers

Queen of Katwe is not only about the success of Phionia Mutesi in chess. It's about two generations of family and mentors behind her that had to overcome enormous personal life obstacles, for Phionia to reach her success. It's the story of her mother and her grandmother and her mentor Robert Katande, as well as his mother and aunts and grandmother.

The world that they live in so harsh that babies get kidnapped and left for dead and children starve and are abused on a regular basis. Women sell their bodies to support their children out of absolute necessity, because their are no other choices. Children can't go to school unless they have the funds to pay for it and even if they do, they still may starve while learning since they can't afford their food as well as schooling.

It's in this environment that Phionia rises to a chess champion at an International Level. She travels the world to play chess while being raised in a place where where most children don't know anything outside of their neighborhood.

It's a story that is truly both captivating and heartbreaking.
