The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an eye-opening and compelling book of life in Ghana told through the eyes of a young boy who finds himself trapped in a living nightmare. Thought-provoking and sinister in equal measure it will take you into the poverty driven underworld of gangland Ghana and lead you to a taut and thrilling climax.

Synopsis

Angel Boy by Bernard Ashley

Leonard runs away from home in Ghana to the historic slave fort of Elmina, where he is kidnapped by a gang of street kids and forced to work for them. A thought-provoking thriller set in an African context for young readers.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
