Today, in violence-torn regions across the globe, 20 million children have been uprooted, orphaned, or injured by war, famine, and poverty. This is their story . . . and ours.

In this powerful and unforgettable book—by turns painful, funny, terrifying, and triumphant—Charles London takes us into the world of refugee children, celebrating their unique skills for survival and reflection. Their remarkable stories and drawings chill the blood and touch the heart, offering an indelible, first hand portrait of the war that rages beyond the headlines.

Industry Reviews

"A profound and deeply moving journey into the minds of children who live with war."

"Innocent in the ways of the world": childhood and war -- children fleeing / "Then he lined us up" -- migrants and refugees in hiding / "We can't stay here" -- children in camps, shelter, and on the streets / "I am getting used to living here" -- children as soldiers / "The things I've done" -- coming of age in post-war Kosovo and Bosnia / "Surviving the peace" -- what becomes of war's children / "God has something in store".
