Lekpele was born in an era when his native Liberia was under military rule. At a tender age of six, his country was plunged in a civil war. He saw the horrors, walked through checkpoints, and endured the nightmares from the catastrophe he witnessed firsthand during the civil war. Scary Dreams is a story, told from the tiny lenses of a child; it narrates things he saw but didn't understand daunted experiences he couldn't process; agonies he couldn't hold; the silent tears he shed, the hopes cherished and the dreams held dear. It is an account of a lad, watching a nation rip itself apart only to leave the rest of the world to gather the shreds. Lekpele takes us on a journey of the haunted years, the stolen innocence, the exile screams and the hope of the future.
