Stunning

by Eric W on Mar 3, 2013

The twists and turns in the ... More

Sad but wonderful

by courtneyinatlanta on Aug 26, 2010

This is a very sad and touching book about a little boy growing up in Afghanistan. It really made me stop and think about racism, how kids struggle with right and wrong, and there's some good history education in it too. Very good book. More
