520    Michel Chikwanine was five years old when he was abducted 
       from his schoolyard soccer game in the Democratic Republic
       of Congo and forced to become a soldier for a brutal rebel
       militia. Against the odds, Michel managed to escape and 
       find his way back to his family, but he was never the same
       again. After immigrating to Canada, Michel was encouraged 
       by a teacher to share what happened to him in order to 
       raise awareness about child soldiers around the world, and
       this book is part of that effort. Told in the first person
       and presented in a graphic novel format, the gripping 
       story of Michel's experience is moving and unsettling. But
       the humanity he exhibits in the telling, along with 
       Claudia Dávila's illustrations, which evoke rather than 
       depict the violent elements of the story, makes the book 
       accessible for this age group and, ultimately, reassuring 
       and hopeful. The back matter contains further information,
       as well as suggestions for ways children can help. This is
       a perfect resource for engaging youngsters in social 
       studies lessons on global awareness and social justice 
       issues, and would easily spark classroom discussions about
       conflict, children's rights and even bullying. Michel's 
       actions took enormous courage, but he makes clear that he 
       was and still is an ordinary person, no different from his
       readers. He believes everyone can do something to make the
       world a better place, and so he shares what his father 
       told him: "If you ever think you are too small to make a 
       difference, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito."
