A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier - Ishmael Beah

Beah's memoir offers true accounts of his experiences at a young age fleeing Sierra Leone and being forced to become a rebel fighter in the early 90s. Soon enough, Beah is brainwashed as a child soldier to rely on guns and drugs until he is rescued and sent to a rehabilitation program. A Long Way Gone allows readers to attempt to understand the truth behind child soldiers, as Beah continued in his career to recount his story and shed light on his experiences. His memoir, though traumatic, is a beautiful expression of the hope for humanity and self-forgiveness despite a life of crime and unforgettable hardships.
