This movie-tie in edition of the acclaimed debut novel by Uzodinma Iweala tells the unforgettable story of the life of a child soldier in a war-torn African country.
In this stunning debut novel, Agu, a young boy in an unnamed West African nation, is recruited into a unit of guerrilla fighters as civil war engulfs his country. Haunted by his father's own death at the hands of militants, Agu is vulnerable to the dangerous yet paternal nature of his new commander. While the war rages on, Agu becomes increasingly divorced from the life he had known before the conflict started?a life of school friends, church services, and time with his family still intact.
In a powerful, strikingly original voice that vividly captures Agu?s youth and confusion, Uzodinma Iweala has produced a harrowing, inventive, and deeply affecting novel.
