PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Beginning in the months before 9/11, this sensitive, timely debut follows an Afghan family's emigration to San Francisco. Senzai educates readers about U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, Afghan cultural diversity, and the Qur'an's fundamental messages of peace. She writes with powerful, realistic detail about Fadi's family's experiences, particularly the prejudice Fadi finds at school. A satisfying contrivance brings this illuminating docu-novel to a joyful conclusion, and young readers may well want to move on to the appended resources to learn more." – Booklist
