This is a great book to introduce kids to the war in Sudan. The descriptions are not overly detailed or graphic and there is enough information to interest kids but not bore them. I was a little surprised when it covered a year and a half in one short chapter, but I think it is enough for younger readers (older elementary-middle school). It was a very touching book and I loved the alternating plots between the 1980s and 2008.
