Theme in A Long Way Gone

The book A long way gone shows how the sense of belonging can be a destructive but also a virtuous feeling.


  1. Very true!! I think he just wants to feel secure and loved.

  2. True! There are paragraphs in the book where he mentions feeling like he is part of something, and it made him feel good. This can even happen in everyday life in the United States. In cliques, we see it happen all the time. People hanging out with the wrong group, just because they don't want to be alone. They want to feel like they belong.
