War Brothers: The Graphic Novel by Daniel LaFrance, adapted from the novel written by Sharon E. McKay

 This is powerful stuff.

 WAR BROTHERS: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL is an illustrated adaptation of a prose novel written by Sharon E. McKay in 2008. Artist Daniel LaFrance masterfully adapts the story of Jacob Kitino, a young boy abducted from his school in Africa and forced to fight in Joseph Kony's  "Lord's Resistance Army". The plight of these "Child Soldiers" is absolutely heartbreaking, and the story McKay and LaFrance tell is both terrifying and utterly absorbing. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
