The way I feel about Ishmaels rehabilitation is that he is getting better and he can probably see the light at the end of the tunnel. I wouldn't mind if he lived in my neighborhood if I knew what he was and what he went through also he is in rehabilitation which shows me he is getting help.
The lesson that I took away from this book is that you should never loose hope no matter how bad it gets. What I want to remember the most from this book is all the stuff Ishmael went through while at war because it makes me thankful that I have a life here in America. A quote that I liked is "Things changed rapidly in a matter of seconds and no one had any control over anything."
The books leaves me wanting to know more about child soldiers and where else do they use this. So I found that in the last 15 years the use of child soldiers had spread to every region. Also I found that 10 to 30 percent are girls are used for fighting and given to the commanders as wives.
