Overview

Girl Soldier: A Story of Hope for Northern Uganda's Children by Faith J. H. McDonnell, Grace Akallo

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.
