Song for Night by Chris Abani
Book DescriptionSong for Night is the story of a West African boy soldier's terrifying yet beautiful journey through the nightmare landscape of a brutal war in search of his lost platoon. The protagonist is voiceless - cutting child mine-clearers' throats being a standard proceedure to stop them screaming when blown up and distracting other minesweepers. 'Chris Abani might be the most courageous writer working right now.' - Dave Eggers
