Book description

This might be the most sentimental review I'll ever write here. I remember looking through it several times when Georgia was five or six and I just had to stop and walk away. All these beautiful children, and all their little hopes and fragile families. Each child describes themselves like this - "Hello. My name is Joseph Mbangwe and I live in a village in Eastern Zaire and I am eight years old. I have two little brothers and a baby little sister. I do not go to school yet, but wish to do so soon, when it is possible. I love football!"And you the adult reading this book several years after it was published are silently adding some other comments : "I do not wish to be kidnapped and made to fight by some other boys. I do not wish a lot of soldiers shooting people in my village. I do not hope to have killed ten other boys by the time I am fourteen. I wish to go to school." Or then there was a lovely Eastern European girl. "Hello everyone. My name is Nadia and I live in a small town in the middle of Romania. My dream is to be a dancer and maybe to go to America. I practise every day. I am ten years old" to which can be added "..... and I do not wish when I am eighteen to be told that there is a great job waiting for me in London and to give some guy 20,000 lei to get me there and to wake up and find the job isn't like he said it was at all..."Anyway, you get the drift. The effect of all those little faces, the earnest ones, the crazy smiling ones, the wistful ones, the fiery ones - and sitting next to me my own little earnest daughter - "do you thing she will grow up to be a dancer?" - it was way too much for me. There was pages and pages of these kids, and I knew that some of them would be all right, and some of them wouldn't.You don't see this book coming. There should be a sticker on the front : "Warning! Not for Grownups! Pages of happy hopeful smiling children inside!"
