High School 1 - Nonfiction "A Long Way Gone" Replacement

I'm seeing if anyone has used a different memoir instead of A Long Way Gone to pair up with I Am Malala. I've already taught it and really do like A Long Way Gone, but I have two sensitive high schoolers this year that I'm teaching that I'm pretty sure they won't be able to handle A Long Way Gone based off the nightmares they got from To Kill a Mockingbird, The Lottery, and Harrison Bergeron. Their mom has agreed to try to have them read I Am Malala, but we think A Long Way Gone's description of violence and death might be too much for them. The other students in the class will read A Long Way Gone, but I want to give them something else to read.
