How would I write a half page reading log about the setting in the novel?

A reading log, as far as I understand it, is your reflection on aspects of the book. Consider the atmosphere in Sierra Leone. The country is in a constant state of rebellion and war. Then factor in Ishmael's life as a boy in this chaos. A twist of fate leads Beah (along with his older brother and two friends) to leave their home village to practice for a talent competition in a nearby town on the eve of an attack by the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) on his home village of Mogbwemo. From that moment, chaos envelops Beah's life as he seeks news of his family and survival for himself and his companions.
