A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A heart-wrenching account of a young boy's experience as a child soldier during the Civil War in Sierra Leone. Most would not believe that something so horrible could happen as recently as the mid-90s, and unfortunately it is still happening today. Ishmael is a survivor in every sense of the word.
