From the Publisher:
Separated from his family and assigned to a labor camp when soldiers invade his home in Cambodia, young Arn volunteers to become a musician for the army and uses his wits to survive and steal food for other child prisoners before he is conscripted as a boy soldier. By the National Book Award finalist author of
"What [Patricia McCormick] produced is a journey into the horror of those years, told with the ingenuous directness of youth and employing her subject's rough-and-ready patois....As the story unfolds from atrocity to anguish it gains momentum until, in its final chapters, it becomes a gripping account of the inner turmoil of a child soldier." "Once again, McCormick has delivered a heartrending exposé of human tragedy. The natural syntax and grammar of Arn's narration imbues his story with a stunning simplicity and clarity against a backdrop of political chaos, terror, and death." 05/01/2012
