Moses, Citizen & me
When Julia flies to war-scarred Sierra Leone from London, she is apprehensive about seeing her uncle Moses for the first time in 20 years. But nothing could have prepared her for her encounter with eight-year-old cousin Citizen, a former child soldier, and for the shocking truth of what he has done. Driven by a desire to understand Citizen, Julia journeys into the rainforest, where to her surprise, she encounters him amongst other child soldiers, along with a mysterious storyteller, Bemba G. Is he a shaman, teacher, wizard, or magician? He alone in th heart of the rainforest can heal the rift between the cultures of war and peace, Europe and Africa. Moses, Citizen & Me is an exciting discovery—a first novel by someone who has already found a confident and compelling voice, and who handles her devestating material with great delicacy and empathy.
