As a child in a small rural village in Sierra Leone, Mariatu Kamara lived peacefully surrounded by family and friends. Rumors of rebel attacks were no more than a distant worry. But when year-old Mariatu set out for a neighboring village, she never arrived. Heavily armed rebel soldiers, many no older than children themselves, attacked and tortured Mariatu. During this brutal act of senseless violence they cut off both her hands. Stumbling through the countryside, Mariatu miraculously survived.

    The sweet taste of a mango, her first food after the attack, reaffirmed her desire to live, but the challenge of clutching the fruit in her bloodied arms reinforced the grim new reality that stood before her. With no parents or living adult to support her and living in a refugee camp, she turned to begging in the streets of Freetown. In this gripping and heartbreaking true story, Mariatu shares with readers the details of the brutal attack, its aftermath and her eventual arrival in Toronto.

    There she began to pull together the pieces of her broken life with courage, astonishing resilience and hope. The author is 12 when rebel children soldiers attack her in her village in Sierra Leone.

    They also amputate both hands. Amazingly she survives and makes her way with help to a clinic. Her journey with Memoir about a young girl's survival of the violence of the civil war in Sierra Leone. Explicit descriptions of the violence and hardships of Mariatu's life.
