Here is a peak into her book The Baboon and The Backpack: Journals from War-torn West Africa:
Sporadic gunfire ricocheted more often now around her neighborhood, causing everyone to scatter. Her father had already been commandeered at gunpoint and labeled a spy, simply because of where they lived. Now rebel leader Charles Taylor boasted over stolen radio waves that he was advancing across central Liberia, right through her town. Truckloads of government soldiers barreled north, bristling with artillery. Nervous and wounded civilians packed and fled south. Her backpack, crammed with journals and photographs, stood at attention by the door.
Peek into the front lines of an African civil war, and savor the vibrant beauty of West African peoples, landscapes and cultures in this riveting true story.
