Children of War: Voices of Iraqi Refugees* by Deborah Ellis
In this collection of more than 20 interviews with young Iraqi refugees, children describe how their lives have been forever reshaped by war in their homeland. The stories they share are often of fear, displacement, and struggle. While giving voice to these tragic young victims of war, the author highlights their courage, candor, and resilience as they miss their homeland and face an uncertain future.
