Summary
  • "Forced to become a child soldier, sixteen-year-old Somali refugee Abdi, must confront his painful past"--
  • When Abdi's family is kidnapped by a ruthless CIA agent, he's forced to become a child soldier with the ruthless jihadi group Al Shabaab-- embedded as a spy within the militia's ranks and to send dispatches on their plans to the Americans. Training and witnessing atrocity after atrocity, Abdi soon wonders if he's even pretending anymore. Forced into a suicide bomber's vest, he is left with stumps where two of his fingers used to be. He escapes, but is picked up for a petty theft, which forces him to reckon with a past he's been trying to forget. -- adapted from jacket and goodreads.com info
