New Release Alert!!

On the “New Release Shelf”: “A Long Way Gone, Memoirs of a Boy Soldier” by Ishmael Beah. This book is a gripping account of a young man who was forced to become a boy soldier in Sierra Leone at the age of twelve. At 16 he was removed from fighting by UNICEF. Through the help of rehabilitation he has learned to forgive himself, recover his humanity and, finally, heal. This is an extraordinary and mesmerizing account told with uncommon honesty and humanity. If you were moved by Elie Wiesel’s “Night”, you will enjoy this book.
