Tracey read this one so this is her review

- its going to be like *A Boy In striped PJ's* was for the story of the

Jews in concentration camps....but this time for the boy soldiers in

wars in Africa. It is compelling, upsetting and sometiemes very raw.

Certainly speaks to the powerlessness of the children and the ease at

which they are indoctrinated to the way of the guerilla warfare. The

true horror of war is bought out in a way that is easily identified

with by the reader. There is no sensationalism, just a more matter of

fact observance of the things that become an everyday thing during

war. A great read.
