Sorry, Currently unavailable or backordered


Deborah Ellis has been widely praised for her gripping books portraying the plight of children in war-torn countries. Now she turns her attention closer to home, to the children whose parents are soldiers fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. In frank and revealing interviews they discuss how this experience has marked and shaped their lives. The children talk on military bases, in the streets, in their homes, and over the phone. They speak with remarkable candor about how war has touched their daily lives, and they remind us that although they may be living safely in North America, children always suffer when nations go to war.
