All of Beah’s violent experiences taught his readers about the effects of harsh war, injustice, the world outside of our own happy towns and most importantly the true power of hope and courage.
A Long Way Gone was an enormously inspirational novel. He spoke eloquently and told the truth without sheltering his readers.
