About this title


An exploration of the lives of children forced to be soldiers, and the efforts to help them.

From the Back Cover:

Grace Akallo dreamed of being the first person from her village to go to college, and loved attending school in her home country of Uganda. But her life was thrown into chaos when soldiers from the Lord's Resistance Army--led by the notorious Joseph Kony--invaded her boarding school, abducting her and her classmates. Forced into the night and given a gun, Grace and the others were expected to fight, or die.

Thousands of children around th world, like Grace, are violently abducted and forced to become child soldiers. They are made to participate in ongoing conflicts, often having to fight and kill. Some are given drugs and alcohol, and many are grievously abused, sometimes sexually. Many are killed in conflict or by their captors, and the ones who do survive often face new challenges, as they grapple with post-traumatic stress disorder, sexually transmitted diseases, poverty, and drug addiction. This book tells the story of Grace and other children like her, forced into violence and irreparably scarred, and the efforts, sometimes led by by Grace herself, to create a better future for these children.

Kem Knapp Sawyer is the author of several biographies for young readers, including books about Mohandas Gandhi and Nelson Mandela for Morgan Reynolds Publishing.
