    Narrated by two teenage boys on opposing sides of the conflict between the Burmese government and the Karenni, one of Burma's many ethnic minorities, this coming-of-age novel takes place 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/5(30).   Bamboo People, told from both of the boys’ perspectives, is an adventure story, a war story and a real page turner. Mitali Perkins (Rickshaw Girl) lived in Chiang Mai Thailand for three years and toured Karenni refuge camps on the Thai-Burma border, which gave her the idea for this book. Through Bamboo People, even juvenile readers can become part of an intelligent, global community that will be empowered to truly effect positive change.
