Believing he was being sent to school, Emmanuel trekked his way to a refugee camp in Ethiopia where he became one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. After nearly five years of fighting, Emmanuel was smuggled into Kenya by Emma McCune, a British aid worker, and finally began to have a childhood and an education. When Emma died tragically, Emmanuel struggled to find purpose in life but eventually - through the power of prayer and music - he succeeded. From child soldier, to refugee, to rap star, War Child is one boy's incredible story of survival and triumph., Jal, Emmanuel, Jal, Emmanuel., MWT11810480, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :St. Martin's Press,2009., Political activists, Rap musicians, Sudan, Unabridged., War child :[a child soldier's story]Emmanuel Jal., War child :a child soldier's story /Emmanuel Jal and Megan Lloyd Davies., [United States]:Macmillan Audio ,2009., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, f-sj---, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/mcm_9781427206367_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw
