The Little Soldier by Bernard Ashley When Kaninda survives a brutal attack on his village in East Africa he joins the rebel army, where he's trained to carry weapons, and to use them.
 
But aid workers take him to London where he fetches up in a comprehensive school. Clan and tribal conflicts are everywhere, and on the streets its estate versus estate, urban tribe versus urban tribe.
