A Long Way Gone


If I could recommend one book from this year, it would be A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah. This is the most recent story Adam and I have finished together. We love to read together when traveling–and we seem to have lots of travel time lately.

 This is a true story of a young boy in a war torn country…a story of sadness and despair…a story of hope and goodness. If I was still teaching, I would read most of it to my students–it’s that powerful. This book is worth the purchase.
