520    Eight-year-old Etienne and his family live in The 
       Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Kidnapped by a 
       rebel army and forced to be a child soldier, Etienne 
       finally escapes and is sent to a camp for freed child 
       soldiers. He is reunited with his family who then flee the
       country, arriving as refugees in Canada. Interspersed with
       facts about the DRC and its people, this narrative tells a
       story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers
       will learn about the experiences of child soldiers and how
       they can help refugees in their communities and around the
       world who are struggling to find permanent homes.
