From the Publisher
Editors Note Author of War Horse, and bestselling storyteller Michael Morpurgo touched our hearts with this beautiful story of a boy, his lost dog, and the lengths he would go to be reunited. This timely story of battle-scarred Afghanistan delivers a masterful portrait of war, love, and friendship. ||With the horrors of war bearing down on them, Aman and his mother are barely surviving in an Afghan cave, and staying there any longer will end horribly. The only comfort Aman has is Shadow, the loyal spaniel that shows up from places unknown, it seems, just when Aman needs him most. ||Aman, his mother, and Shadow finally leave the destroyed cave in hopes of escaping to England, but are held at a checkpoint, and Shadow runs away after being shot at by the police. Aman and his mother escape--without Shadow. Aman is heart-broken. ||Just as they are getting settled as free citizens in England, they are imprisoned in a camp with locked doors and a barbed wire fence. Their only hope is Aman's classmate Matt, his grandpa, and the dream of finding his lost dog. After all, you never lose your shadow.
Annotation Political asylum, friendship, and the surprising importance of dogs form an intense, thought-provoking middle grade novel. Best friends, 14-year-old Matt and Aman love many of the same things, but when Aman and his mother are forced to await deportation at a detention center, Yarl's Wood, everything changes. Six years ago, Aman and his mother narrowly escaped Afghanistan with the help of a spaniel named Shadow, finding safety in England. Shortly after their removal to Yarl's Wood, Matt goes to his grandfather's to spend the summer. Matt tells his grandfather about Aman, and soon the older man begins campaigning for the boy and his mother. Narrated by Matt, his grandfather, and Aman, this story is told with tenderness and an eye-opening view of deportation.
