Reviews

It's a gritty, poignant, and intensely personal glimpse into the effects of war and poverty.-- "Publisher's Weekly"
This nuanced portrayal of adolescence in a struggling nation refrains, refreshingly, from wallowing in tragedy tourism and overwrought handwringing.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
With a succinctly written opening for each interview, Ellis provides valuable historical, social, political and cultural context. A beautifully written introduction, thorough glossary and a list of organizations and books for additional information further round out the book. A must have for most libraries.-- "CCBN"
Young readers will likely appreciate Ellis's approach, which renders social and political trends in one of the world's most volatile regions accessible by focusing on the experiences of kids their own age.-- "Quill and Quire"
Each of their stories is introduced with relevant, contextual, cultural details from Ellis' sharp observations.-- "Smithsonian"
