What a great book to read about the war over in Iraqi. This book gives a graphic image of how the children and their families lived through such horrifying situations. As an adult, I can only imagine how scared and confused the children had to of been. They are living in surrounding countries in poor conditions, scared of being deported back to die in Iraqi. I learned a different side in this book. Empathy is a good word for it. ( )

Deborah Ellis interviews children who have become victims of the Iraqi war. The children tell thier story of life before the war and how their lives have changed since. It is interesting to hear a different side of the Iraqi war. I would use this in a world history class. Grades 6-12. ( )

This book is a collection of stories told by children as young as 8 through the age of 19. These are all children who have had to flee their home country of Iraq to find safety in other countries. Their stories are grief-stricken and tragic. Many of the children have lost their parents. The young children and teens have to live in fear and most can never return home. ( )

Deborah Ellis, who wrote the Parvana series, has compiled a short book of interviews with Iraqi children from the ages of 8 to 19. A disturbing look at the effects of war on children - the horrors they have seen and endured and the emotional scars they have suffered because of the Gulf War. Eva's story of how her father was killed in front of her 6 year old brother, and Abbadar's story of his brother being killed and thrown on the rubbish pile are horrible, but the worst was Eman 18 who can't speak she is so traumitised and Ellis describes the house and the terrible state of her mother.
