Synopsis

Winner of the 2015 Social Justice Literature Award for Nonfiction Chapter Book and 2015 MEOC Middle East Book Award for Youth Non-Fiction. Journey to some of the world's conflict zones through the camera lens of photojournalist Jenny Matthews, as she captures the impact war has on children and their families. This book takes a very personal approach as Jenny recalls some of her most memorable assignments, and the people and children she encountered along the way.

The book features photographs with a human and environmental message from some of the world's war-torn hotspots - with a focus on children. The photographs are structured around key themes relating to children's lives and their rights.

The supporting text voices Jenny's reactions to what she has seen and gives information about how children have been affected by war in specific conflicts. It also relates the background to wars and conflicts, case studies, key child-related facts, a map and website links.
