Girl Soldier: A Story of Hope for Northern Uganda's Children

by

Girl Soldier: A Story of Hope for Northern Uganda's Children Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For several decades a brutal army of rebels has been raiding villages in northern Uganda, kidnapping children and turning them into soldiers or wives of commanders. More than 30,000 children have been abducted over the last twenty years and forced to commit unspeakable crimes.

Grace Akallo was one of these. Her story, which is the story of many Ugandan children, recounts her terrifying experience. This unforgettable book--with historical background and insights from Faith McDonnell, one of the clearest voices in the church today calling for freedom and justice--will inspire readers around the world to take notice, pray, and work to end this tragedy.

Synopsis:

This unforgettable book chronicles the kidnapping, enslavement, and escape of a young Ugandan girl forced into fighting in a rebel army--and what we can do to help tens of thousands of children avoid the same fate.

Synopsis:

On October, 9, 1996, 15-year-old Grace Akallo was asleep in her dormitory in northern Uganda when brutal Lord's Resistance Army rebels attacked and abducted 139 girls. This is Grace's account of her terrifying seven-month ordeal, along with insights from Faith McDonnell.
