Description

"A Long Way Home, Memoirs Of A Boy Soldier," by Ishmael Beah is a gut retching, riveting revelation of the horror of having his childhood ripped from his grasp by the RUF at the age of twelve. This is the story of the Sierra Leone Civil War (1991-2002) told through the eyes and memories of a gentle thoughtful Ismael. Ismael has a sensitive soul that sees beauty in his native country and describes it lovingly. Then he also describes the senseless, bloody carnage of relatives, friends and villages. He relates his hopes, fears and confusion as to the why this is happening and where can he run to hide from it. Ultimately he and his friends are forced to become boy soldiers. As boy soldiers they must kill or be killed, and quickly learn that they too are capable of doing unthinkable things to other humans they believe are the 'enemy.' At sixteen Ismael is removed by UNICEF and undergoes a painful recovery and rehabilitation. Although extremely difficult, with the help of a caring, nurturing environment, he and other boy soldiers recover their humanity. Ishmael forgives himself for a war that was not his fault, and shares his story with other boy soldiers at the UN in New York City.
