Set in Sierra Leone during the early 1990s, this brutally honest memoir describes Beah’s recruitment by the RUF at age thirteen. As a child soldier who gets hooked on drugs, walks around as the proud carrier of an AK-47 and has lost all sense of humanity – the reader is drawn into a world of untold violence and abduction. Beah recounts his struggles with a painful rehabilitation, drug withdrawal and intense feelings of guilt and sorrow in this phenomenal read.

Perfect for:

• Those interested in learning about child soldiers in Sierra Leone
• Readers of gripping, violent memoirs.
• Those who are not faint of heart.
