Part "My Side of the Mountain" and part "The Red Badge of Courage," a gripping journey of survival across a country at war
From Arthur Dorros, author of many highly-acclaimed picture books, comes this thrilling first novel.
Thirteen-year-old Ehmet, separated from his parents by the violence in his native Bosnia, travels alone across the country to a place he's heard rumors of, a village of children living in peace. Along the way, Ehmet uses all his skills, remembered and read, to find food, shelter, direction, and a new life for himself.
This important and timely book, based on extensive travel and research, shows readers the cost of war and the importance of young people in building peace.

Annotation:
This book compiles the various writings, including essays, poems, confessions, and memoirs, of nearly 40 murderers, some well known, some not. Accompanied by introductory passages, these texts serve as something of an insight into the mind of a psychopathic personality, and show that, more than anything, there really is nothing extraordinary about the inner workings of these men and women--that they are, in fact, not so different from the rest of us.
