Product Description

The story of child-army soldier Grace Akallo--and the hundreds of thousands of children she represents--is a haunting tale of savagery and abuse on the one hand, and the redeeming grace of Christ on the other. Sustained through months of abuse, marching, starvation and battles, Grace held on to a God that could save throughout her ordeal. Written by two authors: Grace and activitst Faith McDonnell, Girl Soldier alternates between their two perspectives; one from a girl who lived through the war, and the other from a woman dedicated to seeing the kidnappings and war stop. Providing background and an international persective, McDonnell's chapters provide the context and measures to be taken to prevent such a war from continuing. 238 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

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.
