Sam wakes up one morning at dawn. It’s strangely quiet. Outside his hut, the village is absolutely silent. No cockerels are crowing. Something is horribly wrong. Stepping outside, Sam’s worst fears are realised. A line of children, all armed with AK-47s, are rushing at him, yelling like crazy. It’s God’s Freedom Army.
Within hours, the strongest children are rounded up, Sam among them, and marched away for training. Left behind is a desolate village and so, so many bodies.
This is an excellent book with realistic experiences and fears – highly recommended
