Booklist Reviews 2011 January #1

Drawing on the true story of one child who fled southern Sudan's brutal civil war, this novel is told from the viewpoint of a "Lost Boy," Jacob, who is just seven years old when he is forced to leave his home and family in 1987. After a perilous trek, he eventually finds refuge in United Nations camps in Ethiopia and Kenya, and, at age 12, he achieves his dream of going to school. As in Lost Boy, Lost Girl: Escaping Civil War in Sudan, by John Bul Dau and Martha Arual Akech (2010), and many other similar, personal accounts of Sudan's conflict, this novel describes the brutal journey and the bliss, for some, of finding food, fresh water, and shelter, as well as the pressure the boys feel to join the army. Along the way, Jacob nurtures a younger kid, and his explanations to the child about the struggle "to find peace again" also put the events in context for readers. Teens will be moved by the unsparing survival story and the climax, when Jacob learns to read. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
