It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder

Eatin' out of garbage pails

Got a bum education

Can't stop to turn around

Stabbed that man right in his heart

I can't walk through the park, cause it's crazy after dark

Of how you lived so fast and died so young

In the book a long way gone its like a jungle for him, there are so many things going on, it’s crazy, and scary. He doesn’t have a steady food source so he has to find his own food, he sometimes doesn’t even know if it’s going to make him sick, or die. He has very little education, he went to school for a couple years. He can’t stop to turn around because it means death, he has to keep pushing on. He can’t just walk anywhere, he can’t go into certain places. He’s only going where he thinks it’s safe.

RUF, revolutionary united front. They were a rebel army that fought in a war with Sierra Leone for 11 years, because they wanted to be in control. Plus they were fighting for there rainforest. The rainforest is very valuable, and a lot of them are being taking out for the wood. They did not win the war, but many of them were prosecuted in 2009, and many of them went to jail. A lot of them also are amputee's.

Along for the Ride

I am currently reading a book called Along for the Ride, by Sarah Dessen. I would recommend this book for a lot of people, mostly girls though. It's a very realistic realistic realistic. It is about this girl, her mother and father get a divorce. She is a very smart girl, she studies all the time. She doesn't hang out with her friends to much. Her father is an author, he is working on a novel, and her mother is a english teacher. Auden decides to go down to her fathers beach front house for the summer, and she experiences many different things and does thing she would have never done at her mom. She brakes out of her shell and finds someone different inside herself.
