War Child: A Boy Soldier's Story

by Emmanuel Jal
£8.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (2010)

War Child: A Boy Soldier The extraordinary and inspirational story of a boy soldier in the Sudan People's Liberation Army.
 
Emmanuel Jal was seven years old when Sudan's bloody civil war separated him from everything he knew. Believing he was being sent to school, Emmanuel trekked his way to a refugee camp in Ethiopia where he became one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. Here he was taught the ways of war and told that the gun, machete and spear were 'his mother and father now'.
 
After fighting on the frontline, Emmanuel was smuggled into Kenya by Emma McCune, a British aid worker, and finally began to have a childhood and an education. After Emma's tragic death, Emmanuel's new-found happiness was destroyed and he struggled to put his past behind him. Eventually - through the power of prayer and music - he succeeded.
 
From child soldier, to refugee, to rap star, War Child is one boy's incredible story of survival and triumph.
