Long Way Gone

Kahley Mitchell

Ishmael

Ishmael is slowly losing his innocence. By being captured by the rebels and almost being killed, brings him to realize what the world is really like. He is not the same, happy young boy in the beginning, but a young man that has lost his purpose.

Connection

Today, Isis is recruiting young children to fight for them. This is similar to the book, A Long Way Gone, because the African rebels are capturing children too.
