This book is based on a true story. It's about a boy named Ishmael who is not living a normal life. He was 12 and trying to save his friends and family life's. He's trying to hide from a group called the rabbles. He's in a war trying to escape. he's in trouble he's has no other choice but to kill them before they kill him. "My imagination at ten years old didn't have the capacity to grasp what had taken away the happiness."The first time that I was touched by war I was 12"



In contemporary literary studies, a theme is the central topic a text treats. People may have to do things in war that they will regret to survive but not reflect who they are This book is sad but it get the message though your mind and opens your eyes. "I tried to stop myself from thinking, but nothing seemed to work. I decided to just ignore every thought that came to my head, because it brought too much sadness."
