Ishmael, Junior, and Talloi remain in Mattru Jong with their friends, Kaloko, Gibrilla, and  Khalilou. They still haven't heard from their families and do not know if anyone survived  the rebels' attack on their village. A messenger arrives from the town of Sumbuya, the  site of the most recent massacre. The rebels have carved the initials RUF  (Revolutionary United Front) with a hot bayonet on the messenger's body. The  messenger reports that the rebels will be arriving in Mattru Jong soon and they expect  to be welcomed since they claim to fight for the people. Most of the village goes into  hiding, but after ten days without the rebels arriving, life returns to normal. Five days  later, the rebels attack; Ishmael and his friends escape.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
