Beah and his companions experience hunger and thirst the likes of which none of them had encountered before. They scavenge abandoned farms and even stooped to assaulting a little boy who had two boiled ears of corn to himself.

We were so hungry that it hurt to drink water and we felt cramps in our guts. It was as though something were eating the insides of our stomachs. Our lips became parched and our joints weakened and ached. We didn't know where else to get food. Animals such as birds or rabbits were nowhere to be seen....One evening we chases a little boy who was eating two boiled ears of corn by himself. Ch 5
