Recommended Reads: A Long Way Home

I recently finished reading Ishmael Beah's "A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier," and it was a stunning, heartbreaking, and profoundly wise read. For a story so bleak and difficult to tell, it left me feeling an incredible amount of hope, which is testament, I think, to not just a good writer and a well-told story, but a wise soul whose words should be shared and read widely.
