Shattered Stories of Children and War

As bullets ring and bombs are dropped children watch mostly from the sidelines but occasionally in the direct line of fire Unaware of the political issues or power struggles behind the battle all they know are the human emotional conseuences of this thing called war This collection exam I really wanted to like this but the stories were so badly written I had a very hard time getting into any of them because I had no idea what was really going on The writer should have written a little history on the person before each story like how old they werewhere they live and what war was going on

Jennifer Armstrong ¾ 8 characters

Child's perspective The settings vary widely the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan an attempted coup in Venezuela the American Civil War crisis in the Middle East but the effects are largely the same In war no life is ever left untouched In war lives are shattered From the Hardcover editio This book wasn t uite what I expected but it was interesting to read Instead of taking the dramatic stance of all the stories having to do with children directly affected by war like having to fight in it themselves or dealing with actual combat a lot of the stories dealt with the indirect effects of war Most of the stories were actually based in the United States which was not what I expected and one story was even based on a mom who was a librarian who was accused of being a Communist in her town The stories were short with facts about children and war written along the bottom of the pages which was a nice little addition
