Eternal Journey by Ben Dosso
Samba Diallo grew up in a decent home, with loving parents, and access to education. On the eve of his 12th birthday, a rain of bombardments stormed on his city, Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
In a matter of one night, everything he knew was taken from him, and he began what felt like an eternal journey under the rain. Between the ages of 12 and 17, Samba was attacked and left for dead, kidnapped and taken for ransom, forced to watch women and children being raped and murdered, and forced to traffick drugs.
