Shocking, heartbreaking, powerful, unforgettable.

This is a very hard to read book. It deals with lots of violence, child soldiers, life in a war torn country. The disparity between rich and poor, and ultimately being true to yourself, standing up for your beliefs, and the importance of friendship and family.

It deals with several young boys abducted from their school by soldiers, who use fear and brutality to force the kids to do their bidding.

The themes are mature and there is violence, but it is not overly graphic or gratuitous. Rather, this book shows the reality of life as a child soldier. The book is fictitious, but very very real. ( )

I couldn't get entirely into this one. Too much pain and politics for me, and perhaps I have read too many of this type of raw semi-true type book of late. ( )

A group of boys in Uganda who are kidnapped from their school and forced to become child soldiers in the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army). As they are forced marched into the wilderness they are told if they want to eat they must kill. No killing no food. Jacob is a rich boy with a famous, wealthy father and he holds tight to the belief that his father will come for them and he will be saved. In my opinion this was a pretty good book, I would recomend people that like war story or action story because in the story there is like non-stop action. I really liked Sharon Mckay style of writing because when i was reading it i was emotional. ( )
