Notes

Description
In 1990, when bullets hit Agnes Fallah Kamara-Umunna's home in Monrovia, Liberia, she and her father hastily fled, along with thousands of others. After years of exile, Agnes returned to Liberia--now devastated by years of civil war. Families had been torn apart, villages destroyed, and it seemed as though no one had been spared. Agnes accepted a job at the local UN-run radio station. Their mission is peace and their method is reconciliation through understanding. Soon, she came up with a daring plan: find the former child soldiers and record their stories. So Agnes headed out to the ghettos of Monrovia and befriended these lost boys and girls. Victims and perpetrators spoke on her program. Agnes comforted rape survivors, elicited testimonials from warlords, and was targeted with death threats--all live on the air. Harrowing, hopeful, humorous, and deeply moving--this is Agnes's testimony to a nation's descent into the horrors of civil War, and its subsequent rise out of the ashes.--From publisher description.
