Reading this was heart breaking, and I cannot even begin to imagine how long and arduous is the healing process is for a child soldier, or at least for those fortunate enough to escape and to be rehabilitated. This story, itself, is fiction, but it is based on real accounts of former child soldiers, regular children who were abducted by Joseph Kony and forced to do the unspeakable. ( )

I couldn't put this book down. Even when dinner time was called I didn't want to walkaway from it. Even as a book of fiction you know that this is based on some true stories. The evil that this group puts on families and children is just mind blowing. Boys and girls ripped from the safety of home to a world of war and tear. Truly a book work reading again and again. ( )

War Brothers written by Sharon E. McKay, with artwork by Daniel Lafrance is a graphic novel, a work of fiction based on the actual abduction of school children in Uganda by a terrorist group that call themselves the Lord’s Resistance Army. This story centres on a young boy, Jacob, and his friends that are taken from their school and forced into slavery. These boys were originally being held for ransom, but when this didn’t work out, they were given a choice of either becoming soldiers or being killed.

Jacob and his friends were the lucky ones that managed to escape. It wasn’t easy returning to their lives, they continue to be haunted by their experiences but at least they were safe. It took a long time before they were accepted back as most people were frightened by them.

Although a work of fiction, the author based her story on interviews with abductees in Uganda. Also of note is the fact that this story is set in 2002, but the Lord’s Resistance Army continues to torment, abduct and murder children today. War Brothers, with it’s powerful images and riveting text paints a vivid picture of the brutality and desperation that faces children in over 35 different countries today. ( )

The haunting story of a child soldier, based on true events.

Jacob and his friends are sharing stories about their school break, when suddenly the door of their dorm is violently kicked in, Blinded by fear and confusion, the boys are abducted by rebel soldiers - members of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).

Beaten, starved, and forced to become child soldiers, the boys wait in vain for rescue. With barely any hope left, they must make a desperate decision that will end in life or death.

The powerful images and riveting text in this graphic novel tell an unforgettable story of terror and brutality, courage and hope. ( )

Aimed at younger readers, it tells the story with plenty of emotion while shielding readers from the most horrific of the atrocities being committed by Kony and his henchmen. Rape—a common tool in war—is described euphemistically as “bothering the girls"; the beating death of a wounded boy is shown in blackout.

This makes it an excellent book for use with young readers, given that the emotional and psychological torture used on the youths is explained well. By forcing children to choose between dying themselves or killing another, then using the fact that they have killed as proof that they can never go home, Kony’s troops create their damaged and brutal soldiers.
