    One of the strongest threads that run through "Bamboo People" by Mitali Perkins, is that of compassion and humanity. The lives of two teenage boys cross in the most unexpected and unfathomable way. Chiko, a Burmese boy, and Tu Reh, a member of the Karenni tribe that lived in the far reaches of Burma, are on opposing sides of the unrest that exists in the country. Amusing the Gods and the People: The Bamboo Shed Theatre of the Taiping Qingjiao Festival in Sheung Shui Wai.

    Bamboo People was being suggested as an eighth grade reading book due to its violent content and modern historical context. After reading it, I agree it fits better in our eighth grade curriculum because it is set in modern day Burma and refers to the civil war between the Burmese and the Karenni.   A refugee and child soldier challenge the rules of war in this coming-of-age novel set against the political and military backdrop of modern-day Burma. Chiko isn’t a fighter by nature. He’s a book-loving Burmese boy whose father, a doctor, is in prison for resisting the government. Tu Reh, on the other hand, wants to fight for freedom after watching Burmese soldiers destroy his Karenni /5(29).
