The story continues 20 years later, with a fictionalized character named Samuel, representative of the thousands of child soldiers Ricky eventually helped rehabilitate as founder of the internationally acclaimed charity Friends of Orphans.
Working closely with Ricky himself, debut author Keely Hutton has written an eye-opening audiobook about a boy's unbreakable spirit and indomitable courage in the face of unimaginable horror.

Gripping, emotion-inducing story
Where does Soldier Boy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is, by far, my favorite audio book I have listened to. Not only is the story well told, but the narration is wonderful.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Soldier Boy?
When Samuel realizes that the kind man is Ricky.
Have you listened to any of Kevin R. Free and Ricky Anywar - afterword ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not, but plan to now!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The story you need to know.
Any additional comments?
Wow! Just wow! The author did an amazing job telling the gripping story of Ricky's life as an abductee and rebel within the LRA. By weaving in the more uplifting story of Samuel, the story comes to life in a very unusual manner and creates even more emotion in the reader/listener. Congrats to Keely!
This is my first audio book by Kevin R. Free, and I was thoroughly impressed with how he brought feelings to life. I plan to listen to other books he has narrated.
